Gas can be compressed because the particles are far apart and have enough space to move into, solid and liquids particles have no space to move into! Hope this helps!

Why is gas easier to compress than a liquid or a gas?

A gas is easier to compress than a liquid because of the space between molecules. In a gas, the molecules are spaced greater apart, while in a liquid the molecules are closer.

What is harder to compress gas liquid or solid?

The molecules of a solid are the most tightly packed than those of either gas or liquid making it the hardest of the three to compress. Gas has the most space between molecules and is therefore the easiest to compress.


Explain why it is easier to compress gases than a solid or liquid?

In layman's terms, a substance is heated to transform it from a solid, to a liquid to a gas. When this is done, the molecules get more excited and move. This leaves more spaces between the molecules and breaks the bond that exists in the solid form.


Is Carbon dioxide easier to compress than water?

Yes. Actually water is a fairly unique substance as it does not compress at all, and expands when it turns to a solid while all other substances known to man compress when turned to a solid.


Why are gases easier to compress than solids or liquid?

Because they won't resist as much because in one volume of,gas there are less molecules per unit volume than in the same volume of a liquid or solid. There are less molecules in a gas to push back.


Properties of a liquid?

Liquids can flow, their particles can move about more than solid particles, you can't compress them, and they are quite dense.


Explain why liquids and gases are easier to compress compared to solids?

Liquids aren't easier to compress than solids.


How do you explain when a state of matter is said to have definite volume?

A liquid or solid will not take up a larger space than the space it occupies; even if more space is freely available.On the other hand, both a liquid and a solid are incompressible, for most practical purposes; that is, you can't compress it to use less space than the space it uses, either.A liquid or solid will not take up a larger space than the space it occupies; even if more space is freely available.On the other hand, both a liquid and a solid are incompressible, for most practical purposes; that is, you can't compress it to use less space than the space it uses, either.A liquid or solid will not take up a larger space than the space it occupies; even if more space is freely available.On the other hand, both a liquid and a solid are incompressible, for most practical purposes; that is, you can't compress it to use less space than the space it uses, either.A liquid or solid will not take up a larger space than the space it occupies; even if more space is freely available.On the other hand, both a liquid and a solid are incompressible, for most practical purposes; that is, you can't compress it to use less space than the space it uses, either.

yes


Why gases are easier to compress than solids or liquids are?

the lower the density of a compound, the easier it will be to compress it. gases usually have lower density than liquids or solids.


Which physical state of matter cannot be easily compressed?

Solids and liquids are difficult compress. Gases, however, are easy; they respond to changes in temperature and volume.
