Work Step by Step

By definition, a liquid has a fixed volume, but its shape may vary according to the container containing it, so the lemonade is a liquid. In a gas, the movement of the particles is much more intense than in a liquid or solid, so the particles are far apart from each other due to the intense repulsive force, causing it not to acquire shape and volume. When a gas is used to inflate a balloon, tire or anything inflatable, it will occupy its entire volume, which shows that oxygen in the tank and helium in the balloon are gases. A more detailed explanation can be found in the chapter 3.2 States and Properties of Matter, on page 67)
