   Solid, liquid and gas are the three states of matter. The following table lists the differences between these three states of matter.

Property

Solid

Liquid

Gas

Packing of particles

Particles are packed very close to each another.

Particles are packed less close to each other.

Particles are packed very far from each other.

Forces of attraction between the particles

Strongest

Weaker than solids

Negligible

Shape and volume

Fixed shape and fixed volume

No fixed shape but fixed volume

Neither fixed shape nor fixed volume

Compressibility

Negligible

Higher than solids

Highest

Rate of diffusion

Very low

Higher than solids

Highest

Density

Highest

Less than solids

Least

Kinetic Energy of particles

Very small

Higher than solids

Highest

Example

Ice

Water

Water vapour

  The figure below shows the arrangement of particles in these three states of matter.  

  

 Solid   Liquid    Gas

are more dense than gas. Theseare not the only states of matter. Actually, there are seven known states ofmatter. Including from most dense to least dense, BE-C (Bose- EinsteinCondensate), Fermanic Condensate, Solid, Liquid, Gas, Plasma and Quark-GluonPlasma. In a solid the molecules are move slower and are more tightly packedthan, water which has more tightly packed molecules than a gas.

Solid: definite shape,volume,mass. intermolecules are very close, it can't be compressed.

Liquid: No definite shape.takes the volm of the container in which it is kept. definite mass,intermolecules are not very close, it can be cpmpressed.

Gas: no definite shape volume mass. intermolecules are having very large distance can be compressed easily
