Takes the shape but not the size of the container. If it took the size of the container, you would never run out of it.
Has a definite volume. 2 liters is 2 liters no matter where you pour it.

Has a specific shape. Can also say it has a definite shape.
The particles are far apart in this state of matter.
The particles have a very weak attraction to each other, this allows the particles to move fast and in all directions.
