There are three physical states (forms) of matter • Gas Fills the container it occupies Particles are widely separated and in rapid, disordered motion. • Liquid Possesses a well-defned sur±ace and flls the lower part o± the container it occupies. Particles are in contact but able to move in a restricted manner. • Solid Retains its shape regardless o± the shape o± the container. Particles are in contact and only rarely able to move past each other.
