Matter In Our Surroundings- States of Matter PART 2

Gursimran K.

I hope you have read the first part that is the introduction of this chapter. This is the continuation of it, so if you have not read the previous one go check it out in my lessons.



(1) The space between the particles of  the matter

(2) The force of attraction between the particles of the matter

(3) The kinetic energy of the particles of matter

There are three states of matter: Solid (Ice), Liquid (Water) and Gas (Steam)


1. Solids are closely packed.

2. The particles of solids have the least intermolecular space between them.

3. The particles of solids have the most intermolecular force of attraction between them.

4. Solids are rigid and not compressible. They have fixed shape, fixed volume.

5. The particles of solids are not diffusable.


1. Liquids are loosely packed.

2. The particles of liquids have more intermolecular space as compared to the solids and less intermolecular space as compare to the gases.

3. The particles of liquids have the less intermolecular force of attraction as compared to solids between them.

4. Liquids are fluids. They have fixed volume but not shape, they take the shape of the container.

5. The particles of liquids are less diffusable as compared to the gases.


1. Gases are the least packed.

2. The particles pf gases have the most intermolecular space between them.

3. The particles of gases have the least intermolecular force of attraction between them.

 4. Gases are fluids and are highly compressible. They neither have fixed shape nor volume.

5. The particles of gases are highly diffusable.

I will continue the chapter with the interconversion of states of matter in Part 3, so stay tuned.
