Comment on the following statements:a) Sponge though compressible is a solid? b) Can a rubber band change its shape on stretching?

  1. A Sponge is a solid having definite shape and volume. There are minute pores present in the sponge. Air can get easily trapped in the spores. When it is pressed the air will get expelled hence it is compressible
  2. A force when acted on a rubber band will help to change the shape, and it gets backs to original state also. It is elastic in property. It has the ability to regain the shape as it is by using a force. When excessive force is applied the rubber band tends to break.
