2. Incompressible Compressible to a small extent. Highly compressible
3. There is little space between the particles of a solid. These particles have a greater space between them. The space between gas particles is the greatest.
4. These particles attract each other very strongly. The force of attraction between liquid particles is less than solid particles. The force of attraction is least between gaseous particles.
5. Particles of solid cannot move freely. These particles move freely. Gaseous particles are in a continuous, random motion.
