Examples of Liquids


Liquids are a state of aggregation of matter. It is the intermediate state. In most of the elements that have the 3 states of aggregation, they have the liquid state as an intermediate point between the solid and the gaseous one, but this may not always be the case.

Liquids have certain defining characteristics, namely:

  • They are fluid , that is, they form a continuous but easily separable medium, this due to their weakly joined molecules.
  • They have the ability to take on a great variety of shapes and may or may not return to their original shape after an alteration with the force of their surface tension.
  • In zero gravity , thanks to surface tension, liquids tend to create almost perfect spheres that can be used for different scientific purposes.

Liquids , unlike gases, cannot occupy all the space in which they are contained, but they have the property of conserving their density constantly unless heat or cold is applied to them. There is practically more than one liquid chemical element , there are even metals that are liquid such as mercury and gallium that become liquid at room temperature.

But liquids are not limited only to chemical elements, it also applies to compounds and mixtures of solids that have been fragmented into such small parts (without becoming a molecule) that they behave like a liquid.
