What has a definite shape and no definite volume?
Solids have a definite shape and volume. Liquids have a definite volume, but take the shape of the container. Gases have no definite shape or volume.
What conforms to the shape of its container?
A liquid has a distinct volume but assumes the shape of its container. A solid has definite shape and volume, regardless of its container. So gas has no fixed volume or shape and it conforms to the shape of its container.
Which phase of matter has no definite shape and volume?
A gas has neither a definite shape nor a definite volume. Like liquids, gases are fluids. The particles in a gas can move around one another freely.
Is matter that has definite volume but no definite shape assuming the shape of its container?
A solid has definite volume and shape, a liquid has a definite volume but no definite shape, and a gas has neither a definite volume nor shape.
What has an indefinite shape but definite volume?
Liquids have definite volume, but indefinite shape. They are free to form droplets and puddles when they are not inside a container. When a liquid is inside a container, it will take its shape. Unlike gases, a liquid will not change its volume to spread out and completely fill a container.
What is object has neither definite shape or volume?
A gas is a substance with no definite volume and no definite shape. Solids and liquids have volumes that do not change easily. A gas, on the other hand, has a vol- ume that changes to match the volume of its container. The molecules in a gas are very far apart compared with the molecules in a solid or a liquid.
What does matter have no definite shape or size?
If an object is in a gaseous state of matter, it will not have a definite shape or a definite volume. Plasma has all of the properties of a gas except that it is made up of electrons instead of atoms or molecules.
Does definite shape and volume also mean a solid?
A solid has a definite shape and a definite volume . The particles that make up a solid are packed very closely together. Each particle is tightly fixed in one position and can only vibrate in place. In many solids, the particles form a regular, repeating pattern that creates crystals.
