This has a set volume but no set shape; it takes the shape of its container. Water is an example.

The temperature at which a type of matter changes from a liquid to a gas. For water it is 100 degrees Celsius.
The temperature at which a type of matter changes from a solid to a liquid. For ice it is 0 degrees Celsius
The temperature at which a liquid changes to a solid. For water it is 0 degrees Celsius
On this temeparature scale ice melts at 0 degrees and water boils at 100 degrees.
Matter changes in appearance, and the atoms of the matter change, for example, iron turns to rust
Matter changes in appearance but its atoms do not change. Examples include water boiling, or using wood to make a chair.
