Question

State of matter with no definite shape and no definite volume.

  1. Solid
  2. Liquid
  3. Gas
  4. Non-matter

hintHint:

Intermolecular forces of attraction are the least and intermolecular space is large in gases.

The correct answer is: Gas


    • Shape and size depend on intermolecular forces of attraction and intermolecular space.
    • In solids intermolecular forces of attraction are high and they have a rigid shape, particles are very closely packed.
    • In liquids intermolecular forces of attraction are intermediate and liquids take up the shape of the container in which it is kept, intermolecular space is intermediate.
    • In gases intermolecular forces of attraction are negligible and their intermolecular space is huge they do not have any definite shape and volume.
