Matter exists in four forms viz Solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. Liquid molecules have a definite volume but do not have a definite shape. It is impossible to store them without a container. Their molecular attraction is medium and shows Brownian molecular motion. Liquid always flows from a higher level to a lower level.
Gas molecules have no definite volume and shape. To store gas molecules, it is required to have a closed container. Their molecular attraction is minimum when compared to liquid and solid molecules. These molecules flow in all directions and show a constant, random, and free molecular motion. The table below gives the Difference Between Liquid And Gases.
Difference Between Gas And Liquid
|Define||It has no definite shape and takes the shape of the container||It has a definite volume but no definite shape|
|Molecular arrangements||Random but more sparsely arranged||Random but little sparsely arranged|
|Motion of molecules||Free, random and constant||Brownian|
|Storage facility||Needs a closed container to store||Needs a container to store|
|Shape||No fixed shape or volume||No fixed shape but has volume|
|Fluidity||Flows in all the directions||Always flows from higher to lower level|
|Speed of sound||Lowest among solids and liquids||Slower than solid but faster than gas|
