The way the molecules are arranged hi a solid, liquid or gas, determines its properties. The molecules in solids are tightly packed and they attract each other strongly. Therefore, solids have the following properties.

Each physical state of matter possesses characteristics properties of its own. For example: solids are rigid, and incompressible, liquids are almost incompressible but less incompressible than solids, gases are highly compressible, i.e. gases can be compressed easily by applying pressure.
The main effects of pressure on the boiling point of liquids are: - All liquids expand when they vaporize. The effect of pressure on the surface the expansion and delay vaporization. Thus, the boiling point is raised on the application of pressure
