Why are Non-Polar Molecular Solids Called as Solids When They are Either Liquids or Gases?

The non-polar molecular solids are liquids or gases and they are called solids because they comprise of atoms or molecules that are formed by non-polar covalent bonds. Weak dispersion forces or London forces are responsible for holding the atoms in these solids. These solids are non-conductors of electricity and are soft with low melting points. When they are in room temperature and pressure, they are either in a liquid or gaseous state.
