Why Are Gases Easily Compressed?

Answer

Compression is, scientifically, the process of reducing the amount of space between particles in matter. This changes the physical appearance and property of the item being compressed. Gases are easily compressed due to the amount of space that exists between gas particles. The space is rather vast when compared to liquids or solids, which are more densely packed. Because of this large area, the gas has much more room for compression when compared to other matter states.
