Class 9 Chemistry Matter In Our Surroundings Liquid state

Liquid state

  • A liquid has no definite shape and takes up the shape of the container in which it is kept.
  • A liquid has a definite volume due to weaker intermolecular force of attraction than solids.
  • They can flow from a higher lever to a lower level.
  • A liquid is compressible due to larger distance between the neighbouring molecules than solid but lesser than gas.
  • They have lower density.
  • A liquid can diffuse into another liquid due to fact that molecules move faster in a liquid but is slower as compared to gases.
