# What state of matter has a definite volume and definite shape?

## What state of matter has a definite volume and definite shape?

Solids
Solids have a definite volume and shape because particles in a solid vibrate around fixed locations.

## What state of matter has shape and volume?

Solid
Solid is the state in which matter maintains a fixed volume and shape; liquid is the state in which matter adapts to the shape of its container but varies only slightly in volume; and gas is the state in which matter expands to occupy the volume and shape of its container.

Why solid matter has definite shape and volume but gas does not?

(a) Solids have definite shape and definite volume because the molecules in solid are closely packed and in fixed positions. (c) Gases do not have a definite shape or volume because the molecules in gases are very loosely packed, they have large intermolecular spaces and hence they move around.

Which of the following states of matter has definite shape?

Solids have definite shape and definite volume. Gas has no definite shape or definite volume.

### Which has a definite shape?

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 is a definite shape and volume called?

solid
A solid is the state of matter that has a definite shape and volume.

What has a definite shape and volume?

solid: Has a definite shape and volume. liquid: Has a definite volume, but take the shape of the container. gas: Has no definite shape or volume.

Which state S of matter have no definite shape or volume liquids and solids liquids and gasses gasses solids?

Three states of matter exist – solid, liquid, and gas. 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 does not have a definite shape but has a definite volume?

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.

## Which physical state of matter it has a definite shape?

Solids Have Definite Shape and Volume: A solid is the state of matter that has a definite shape and volume.

Which of the following states of matter has no definite shape but it has a definite volume?

What has a definite volume?

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. The change from solid to liquid usually does not significantly change the volume of a substance.

### What state of matter has a shape of its own?

There are three states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. Solid matter has its own shape. This is because the tiny molecules that make up solids are very close together, and they do not move very much. Solid matter can be big, small, round, square, or any shape you can imagine.

### What state of matter keeps the same shape and volume?

Solid is the state in which matter maintains a fixed volume and shape; liquid is the state in which matter adapts to the shape of its container but varies only slightly in volume; and gas is the state in which matter expands to occupy the volume and shape of its container.

What are the four state of matter?

In physics, a state of matter is one of the distinct forms that matter takes on. Four states of matter are observable in everyday life: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.

What state of matter does not have a definite volume?

A plasma is a state of matter much like a gas in that it does not have definite shape or volume. The plasma tends to have an abundance of free electrons, so it behaves very differently than gases. While plasma is very rare on Earth it makes up well over 90% of the matter in the universe.
