The solid state refers to the physical state of matter, where its molecules are tightly bound and firm.
The particles of a solid body have been arranged and put together correctly, adopting well-defined shapes.
Solid State Characteristics
- They have a constant and continuous shape and volume.
- Cohesion: the solid state has the same elements and characteristics of its variants. The difference is that the particles in this state are linked by links called the cohesive force.
- Elasticity: it is known as the belonging of some solids to momentarily disfigure themselves in the presence of an external and constant force.
- Malleability: these are the elements that can be worked by deformation, making thin plates without fragmenting.
- Fragility: it is a characteristic of the solid state; usually accompanies this element. In this case the resistance of this state is overcome by a specific force.
- Rigidity: solids generally resist bending and twisting, preventing the element from losing its shape and returning to its original shape after being deformed.
- Hardness: it is known as physical resistance.
- Ductility: they can deform in the presence of a constant force, transforming into threads or wires. The solids that have this bearing are called ductile.
- Incomprehensibility: it cannot be compressed more than it is accessed, as it can deteriorate, fracture or become smaller pieces.
- They have a high density , so it will always be heavier than the rest.
- Resists change in volume and shape.
- Its molecules are held together by the force of attraction.
- Solid state particles are always in a special geometric regularity.
- Solid elements are characterized by having constant volume and strength.
- Solid particles can only move through vibrations.
