Each sand grain is a solid, even though in large quantities it may seem like a liquid.

Work Step by Step

A. A bowl of pudding: The pudding occupies the shape of its container, which is a physical property of liquids and gasses. The pudding has a definite mass, which is a property of liquids, solids, and gasses. The pudding has a definite volume, which is a property of solids and liquids. B. A bucketful of sand: When considered in large quantities, the sand grains occupy the shape of their container, which is a physical property of liquids and gasses, however each sand grain is a solid because it has a definite shape. The sand has a definite mass, which is a property of liquids, solids, and gasses. The sand also has a definite volume, which is a property of solids and liquids.
