General characteristics of solids




·         Solids have fixed mass, shape and volume.


·         There is least intermolecular space in solids as compared to liquids and gases.


·         There is strong intermolecular forces of attraction between particles in solids.


·         The particles cannot flow in solid state but can flow in molten state.


·         The constituting particles have fixed position. They can oscilate only above and below their mean positions i.e., they have only translational motions.


·         They are rigid.


·         They cannot be compressed except foam, rubber, sponge etc.


·         Most of them have high melting and boiling points.


·         They have higher density than liquids and gases.

·         Their thermal energy is low.
