## What is a definite shape and volume called?

A solid is the state of matter that has a definite shape and volume.

## Has a definite shape and volume property?

Solid is the only state of matter that has a definite shape and definite volume.

What does it mean when an object has a definite shape?

When an object has a definite shape, how is it measured? This means it is a solid, so a formula is used to measure it. The formula depends on its shape.

What material has a definite shape and a definite volume?

solid
A solid has definite volume and shape, a liquid has a definite volume but no definite shape, and a gas has neither a definite volume nor shape. The change from solid to liquid usually does not significantly change the volume of a substance.

### How are definite shapes and volumes?

(a) Solids have definite shape and definite volume because the molecules in solid are closely packed and in fixed positions. The molecules can vibrate but do not move around which keeps the shape and volume definite.

### Why do solid have definite shape and volume?

In the solid state, the individual particles of a substance are in fixed positions with respect to each other because there is not enough thermal energy to overcome the intermolecular interactions between the particles. As a result, solids have a definite shape and volume.

Do liquids have a fixed volume?

Liquids do not have a fixed shape but they do have a fixed volume. The particles are very close together.

Has definite volume meaning?

Glossary. solid: Has a definite shape and volume. liquid: Has a definite volume, but take the shape of the container. gas: Has no definite shape or volume. change of state: When matter is converted from one of the three states (example: solid, liquid, or gas) to another state.

## What is a definite volume?

Definite (for both shape and volume) means that the container makes no difference whatsoever. If 5-liters of liquid water is poured into a 10-liter container, the liquid would occupy 5-liters of the container and the other 5-liters would be empty.

## What is definite volume?

What has definite and volume?

solid: Has a definite shape and volume. liquid: Has a definite volume, but take the shape of the container. gas: Has no definite shape or volume.

What is fixed shape?

Fixed shape means that that state of matter will not change its shape under any changes in condition (volume/pressure/temperature).

### What makes an object have definite volume and shape?

Always has definite shape and volume because the particles are touching each other and can’t move around or past each other. A solid whose atoms are randomly arranged (eraser). A substance where molecules are spread out and takes the shape of that object.

### What kind of liquid has a definite volume?

Liquids have a definite volume but no definite shape. Water , milk, and oil are liquids. A liquid has a definite volume but does not have a definite shape.

What makes a solid have a definite shape?

Any matter that is a solid has a definite shape and a definite volume. The molecules in a solid are in fixed positions and are close together. Although the molecules can still vibrate, they cannot move from one part of the solid to another part. As a result, a solid does not easily change its shape or its volume.

Is there a definite mass and shape of a liquid?

Liquids do not have definite shape, but they do have definite mass and volume. Liquids are similar to solids because their atoms are close together, but what makes a liquid different is that those atoms can move around.
