Question

Which among the following represents the correct increasing order of intermolecular distance between their particles.
  1. Gas < liquid < solid
  2. Solid < liquid < gas
  3. Solid < gas < liquid
  4. Liquid < gas < solid


Solution

The correct option is B Solid < liquid < gas
Matter is made up of particles. These particles are attracted to each other and also have space between them. More the interparticle space, more will be the distance between the particles. Gas particles have more space between them than liquid particles and liquid particles have more space between them than solid particles.

Hence, the increasing order of the interparticle distance in the three states of matter is solid < liquid < gas.
