Question

Why are particles closely packed in solids and not in liquids or gases?


  1. solids are hard and have a fixed shape

  2. strong forces of attraction between particles

  3. less intermolecular space

  4. solids have low kinetic energy


Solution

The correct options are
B

strong forces of attraction between particles


C

less intermolecular space


Particles in solids are packed very closely because there is a very strong forces of attraction between the particles and intermolecular space is almost negligible.Wheras in liquids and gases the forces of attraction are not strong and intermolecular spaces are high.
