Three states of matter exist – solid, liquid, and gas. Solids have a definite shape and volume. Liquids have a definite volume, but take the shape of a container. Gases have no definite shape or volume. There are intra-molecular forces that keep the molecule together. These intermolecular forces are strongest in solids where the molecules are densely packed due to these forces and are weakest in gases where the molecules are sparsely packed.
