The ice cube (left) is a form of a solid. The cup of water (Right) is a form of a liquid.

Liquid

Gas

Particles that spread apart, filling all of the space avalible is known as gas. They have no definite volume and no definite shape. Gas has high energy, which means they move at a fast pace.

When particles are tightly packed together and stay in one position, they are considered a solid. A solid does have a definite shape and a definite volume. But solids have low energy, which means they move at a slower pace.

Particles that are somewhat packed together, but also move freely around one another are considered liquids. Liquids have definite shapes and volumes. They also have medium energy, meaning they move at a medium pace.

This is what happens during the processof a solid, changing to a liquid, changing to a gas. The particles start out tight together and slowly space out until they arefar apart.
