- 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.
Fig. Particles of liquid (water) are loosely packed than solid and have space between them
