A solid has a definite volume and definite shape.
Reason: The intermolecular force of attraction is very strong. The molecules are strongly held and arranged in order.
A solid is rigid and cannot be compressed easily.
Reason: Molecules are closely spaced and the intermolecular separation is very small which cannot be reduced further.
A solid does not diffuse into another solid easily.
Reason: Intermolecular force of attraction is very strong.
A solid does not flow and can be stored in a container.
Reason: Intermolecular fore of attraction is so strong that molecules do not flow and leave the surface of the solid.
A solid on hating usually changes into its liquid state.
Reason: Heating provides sufficient energy to molecules to overcome the intermolecular force of attraction. Intermolecular separation increases, changing the solid into liquid.
