The atomic bonds hold atoms in structured position.
Gases lack a definite volume because the space between the gas molecules is very large compared to the size of the molecule itself. This allows gases to be compressed or to expand
Solid is a phase of matter in which particles are very close to each. Solids have definite shape and volume because the kinetic energy of particles of solid is very small. The particles
because the mass is denser and the molecules move slower, so they stick together while a liquid's molecules are moving faster than that of a solid so it has definate volume but no
