Does air have a definite shape?

No, as a mixture of gasses it neither has definite shape nor volume.


Do liquid does not have a definite shape but it does have a definite volume?

Yes, liquids have a definite volume but not a definite shape, compared to solids that have a definite shape and a definite volume or gasses that have neither a definite shape or volume.


What state has no definite shape or volume?

the answer is gasses


Chemical properties of solids liquids and gases?

Solids have a definite shape, feel, and weight, Liquids have a definite feel and weight but no definite shape, and gasses do not have a definite weight or shape.


Can a gas change shape?

Gasses have no definite shape and their "shape" is defined by the container that encloses them


What is the difference between solid liquid and gases in shape?

Solids are, well, solid, and have a definite shape. Liquids do not have a definite shape (but do have a definite volume), and neither do gasses (but they don't have a definite volume).


Is gases has definite shape?

no they do not. the particles in gasses are free to move


Why gasses have no definite shape and volume?

why gasses have no definite shape and volume?gases doesn't have shape and volume because the distance between molecules of gases is very large and the force of attraction between them is very low.


How do you describe different states of matter using shape and volume?

Gasses - Indefinite shape and indefinite volume Liquids - indefinite shape, definite volume Solids - definite shape, definite volume


Which state of matter has No definite shape but has definite volume?

Liquid. Most if not all of the gasses, and of couse air.


Which property does liquids and gases have then solids do not have?

The molecules are packed less densely so liquids and gases can move more freely than solids. Solids have a definite mass and shape, whereas liquids dont have a definite shape, and gasses have neither.


Why water vapour donnot have a definite shap?

All vapours, gasses, etc, can only have a definite shape if they are inside a container.


What must have a definite shape?

Three dimensional solid objects. Fluids (liquids and gasses) take the shape of any container they are enclosed in


Do all gases have definite shape and volume?

No gas has a definite shape or volume.Gasses, like fluids, will take the shape of whatever container they're put in.And gasses, as opposed to fluids, are compressible. With the help of a pump they can be packed into a smaller volume. If released into a lower ambient pressure, they'll fill that space too.


What is the different between a gas and a liquid?

the basic difference is between the distance between the molecule which totally changes their shape and structure .......GAS: The molecules of gases are very far from each other therefore they neither have definite shape nor definite volumethey can be compressed easily and the rate of diffusion is highest in gasesLIQUID: The molecule are far but not very far from each other . As they are lit bit far therefore they dont have definite shape . they take the shape of their container. they have definite volumetheir compressibility is less than gasses, they can be compressed to some extent under high pressure . their rate of diffusion is less than gasses.....


Do gases have a definite shape and volume?

No definite shape and no definite volume. The volume of a gas is a function of the pressure. Increase pressure and the volume will drop. Gasses will expand to fill all the available volume if left to their own device, if no exterior pressure is applied.


A material is only a gas if it burns?

No. A gas is any material that has neither definite shape nor definite volume. There are many flammable gasses such as methane, silane, and hydrogen, but there are also many nonflammable gasses such as nitrogen, oxygen, and helium.


Does a liquid have definite shape or no definite shape?

no, liquid does not have a definite shape......


Why can you squash gasses but cannot squash solids and liquids?

A property of gases is that gases can be compressed but liquids and solids cannot be compressed. Liquids have a definite volume but do not have a fixed shape. Solids have a definite shape and a definite volume. Gases have neither a fixed shape nor a definite volume. However, you must keep in mind that gases have a limit to which they can be compressed.


does air have a definite shape and volume?

No, as a mixture of gasses it neither has definite shape nor volume.


Does gas have definite volume?

No, possessing volume is not a property of gas. A gas neither have definite volume not shape. The reason behind this is that " gasses molecules are apart from each other, therefore free space left between the molecules which allows them to move randomly .... Hence gasses haven't definite volume..


Do liquids have definite shape and volume?

Liquids have a definite volume but NOT a definite shape.
