Solids, liquids and gasses are different states of matter. Matter is made up of tiny particles (atoms, molecules and ions) In a. solid t. hey are closely packed, usually in a pattern
The particles in a solid have the following characteristics: they are .
solid- ice, coal, salt. liquid-water, mercury, alcohol. gas-water vapor, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen. also if you look for an periodic table of the elements with states of matter it
There are laws for solids and liquids, too. For instance solids have a coeffient of linear expansion and liquids (and gasses) have a viscosity. Many others.
1 Additional Answer
These are the three stages of matter. Water can accurately show you each stage depending on what temperature it's at. When frozen, it is a solid, when at normal temperature it's a liquid, and when it has reached its boiling point, it becomes a gas.
