Solution

Rigidity can be expressed as the tendency of matter to resist a change in shape.

Compressibility is the ability to be reduced to a lower volume when force is applied.

Fluidity is the ability to flow.

By filling a gas container we mean the attainment of shape of the container by gas.

Shape defines a definite boundary.

Kinetic energy is the energy possessed by a particle due to its motion.

Density is mass per unit volume.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
