Answer Text:
Kinetic theory of matter.
Matter is made up of small particle in accordance to Kinetic Theory of matter: Naturally, there are basically three states of matter: Solid, Liquid and gas: (i)A solid is made up of particles which are very closely packed with a definite/fixed shape and fixed/definite volume /occupies definite space. It has a very high density.
(ii) A liquid is made up of particles which have some degree of freedom. It thus has no definite/fixed shape. It takes the shape of the container it is put. A liquid has fixed/definite volume/occupies definite space.
(iii) A gas is made up of particles free from each other. It thus has no definite /fixed shape. It takes the shape of the container it is put. It has no fixed/definite volume/occupies every space in a container.
