ases have (higher/lower) densities than liquids or solids.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Whether gases have higher or lower densities than liquids or solids should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Anything that has mass, volume and occupies space is known as matter. There are three states of matter that is solid, gas, and liquid.

Explanation

Anything that has mass, volume and occupies space is known as matter. There are three states of matter that is solid, gas, and liquid.

Solid: In this state of matter, the intermolecular forces are very strong due to which the particles (atoms, ions, or molecules) are closely-packed and cannot move randomly. Thus, solids are rigid, incompressible and has high mechanical strength and has definite shape and volume.

Liquid: In this state of matter, the intermolecular forces are strong but less than in solids due to which the particles (atoms, ions, or molecules) are loosely connected and can move past each other...
