# Does a gas keep its shape and volume?

## Does a gas keep its shape and volume?

The properties of gases include: Gases do not have a fixed shape. They spread out and change their shape and volume to fill up whatever container they are in.

## Do gases have a definite mass and volume?

– Here, solids and liquids have definite shape and mass and similarly even gases have only definite mass because mass of a substance is not dependent on their shape. – Thus, the correct answer to this question is that gases have definite mass but no definite volume and shape.

Do gases have a definite shape?

A gas has neither a definite shape nor a definite volume. Like liquids, gases are fluids. The particles in a gas can move around one another freely. If a gas is released in a closed container, the gas particles will move in all directions and spread apart as they fill the container.

Do gases have definite shapes?

A gas has neither a definite shape nor a definite volume. Like liquids, gases are fluids. The particles in a gas can move around one another freely.

### Which statement is true about gases?

The correct answer is Gases neither have definite volume nor definite shape. Gases have neither definite shape nor definite volume because the molecules of gas are very far apart compared with the molecules of solid or liquid.

Does a gas have a definite shape and a definite volume?

Gases have neither shape nor volume. A liquid has a definite volume, but no definite shape. And a solid has a definite shape and a definite volume. What has definite shapes and definite volumes?

Why do liquids have no definite volume?

Liquids have a definite volume, but take the shape of the container. Gases have no definite shape or volume. Why gas has no definite volume? Gases do not have a definite shape or volume because the molecules in gases are very loosely packed, they have large intermolecular spaces and hence they move around.

#### What do solids liquids and gases have that are different?

There is no such state of matter. Solid has a definite shape and volume, liquid has a definite volume but not a definite shape, gases have neither a definite shape nor a definite volume. What do solids liquids and gases have that are different? Structure. Solids have definite shape and definite volume.

#### What is the difference between gasses andliquids?

LIQUIDS are materials that have no definite shape but do have a definite volume. Under normal conditions they can change their shape depending on their container. Like solids they also will not grow or shrink in size. GASSES are materials that have no definite shape or definite volume.
