### What state of matter travels through waves?

It depends. Is it a mechanical wave or a electromagnetic wave? Mechanical waves (for example sound waves) travel trough every state of matter and they can't exist without matter. They don't travel through vacuum. Electromagnetic waves travel trough space and get interrupted only by other electromagnetic waves.

### What is the relationship between kinetic energy of molecules and their physical state?

The relationship between kinetic energy of molecules and their physical state is simple. The higher the kinetic energy the faster the molecules move. The fastest moving molecules are gaseous and the slowest moving molecules are solids.

### What is the difference betwwen physical property and chemical property?

Physical properties are the 'Measurable properties which describe the physical system's state', such as Density, Fusibility etc. Whilst 'Mechanical Properties' as it says in Collins CDT Design and Realisation book Pg 39, that a Mechanical property is a property which is the behaviour of the material when its linked to the application of force such as Strength.
