Question

If the tops were removed from the cylinders, the following would happen:

  1. The solid would fly out of the container
  2. The liquid would fly out of the container.
  3. The gas would fly out of the container.
  4. They all would fly out of the container.

hintHint:

Depends on intermolecular forces of attraction.

The correct answer is: The gas would fly out of the container.


    • States of matter depend on two factors: intermolecular forces of attraction and intermolecular space.
    • In solids, intermolecular forces of attraction are very high even if the top is removed particles won't fly.
    • In liquids, intermolecular forces of attraction are less than in solids but they won't fly on the removal of the top.
    • In gas intermolecular forces of attraction are negligible, on the removal of the top particles would fly away.
