How do you decide whether a sample of matter is a solid, a liquid, or a gas?
The state of a matter is determined by how compact or loose its particles are packed together.
A solid matter's particle is highly compact and can retain a shape, volume, and size.
Liquids have loosely packed particles, and have definite volume but no definite shape( it will take the shape of it's container).
Gasses have very loosely packed particles, gas particles are technically free-moving, they have no definite shape nor volume
