Is matter that has a definite shape and takes up a definite amount of space. The particles are in a solid are close together, like neat and even stacks of tiny balls. Each particle moves back and forth around one point.

3 States of Matter

Physical Properties of Matter

is a matter that has no definte shape and takes up no definite amount of space. like particles in liquids, the particles in gases are not arranged in any pattern. Unlike particles in liquids, however, particles in gases don't stay close together this is because particles in gases are moving much faster than particles in liquids. .....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Matter is everying in the universe that has mass and takes up space. Mass is the amount of matter something contains. Example: a large elephant has a lot of mass.All matter is made up of small bits called particles. Particles are so small that they are always moving. These tiny particles are always moving quickly.

How are particles are arranged in matter and how three states of matter are different?

matter that takes up the shape of its container and takes up a definite amount of space. When matter is liquid its particles slip and slide around each other. The particles don't keep the same neighbors like solid. They move from place to place but still stay close to each other.
