Details:Solids, they have a definite shape that is not easy change. The atoms in a solid are tightly bonded together in a regular geometric lattice.Its not easily compressible.
Examples of Solids are Rocks, walls, bricks are all examples of solids.
Details: Most liquids differ from each other with viscosity. (water-honey).Its the only state of matter that has a definite volume but no fixed shape.The density of a liquid is usually close to that of a solid but much higher than gas.
Examples are Water, honey, and juice.
Details: Has no fixed volume, No definite shape, and has a high kinetic energy.
Examples are Oxygen, helium, and hydrogen.
Details- Particles on it have extreme amount of energy.Sometimes thought of as a gas consisting of electrons instead of atoms.most common phase of matter in the Universe.
Examples: Gases in discharge tubes (Fluorescent Lights and neon signs) Welding arches and lightning.
Details: Groups of atoms that behave as though they are a single particle. -273 degrees is the temperature that it lies.Einstein was the founder of it.
Examples: Thermal, Supercondutives.
