What Is The Volume And Shape Of A Solid? (SOLVED)

If the particles of a substance have enough energy to completely overcome intermolecular interactions, then the particles can separate from each other and move about randomly in space 👍 This describes the gas state, which we will consider in more detail elsewhere 🙌 Like liquids, gases have no definite shape, but unlike solids and liquids, gases have no definite volume either 😉 It’s rare that a change in substance from liquid to solid will significantly alter its volume. A change from liquid to gas can significantly increase the volume of any substance by 1,000, or more. These are the characteristics of gases: [1]
When the energy required to break all intermolecular interactions between particles in a substance is sufficient, they can seperate and travel randomly around the world. The gas state is described in detail below. While gases are similar to liquids in that they don’t have a definite form, gases have a definite volume. The volume change in a substance’s volume from a solid to a liquid is usually not significant. The volume of substances can be significantly increased by changing from liquids to gases, which is usually about a 1,000-fold increase. These are the characteristics of gases (we thank Toniann from Mecca in Saudi Arabia, for their most recent revision). [2]

Nataly Ratliff chem.libretexts.orgExplains how, when the molecules of a substance are sufficiently energetic to overcome all intermolecular interactions and then they can seperate from one another, and travel randomly around space. The gas state is described in detail below. While gases are similar to liquids in that they don’t have a definite form, gases have a definite volume. The volume change in a substance’s volume from a solid to a liquid is usually not significant. A change from liquid to gas can significantly increase the volume of any substance by at least 1,000. These are the characteristics of gases (we thank Reem for their contribution). [3]

Chava Burris chem.libretexts.orgThis article explains how water is unique among other substances. It’s an excellent solvent, it dissolves many substances and permits them to react with each other. Actually, water is sometimes called This ability makes water the universal solvent. Unusually high water content melting and boiling points (0°C and 100°C, respectively) for such a small molecule. This is the boiling points for similar-sized molecules, such as methane (BP = −162°C) and ammonia (BP = −33°C), are more than 100° lower. Water molecules are a liquid at normal temperature, but they have strong intermolecular interactions that allow them to keep the liquid phase at higher temperatures. [4]
