Gases change into solids through a process called deposition. This occurs when gas molecules lose energy, slow down, and come together to form a solid without passing through the liquid state. An example of this is water vapor changing directly into snow or frost.

What properties of solids distinguish them from solids and gases?

Solids don't change their size or shape.

Can solids liquds and gases change there shape?

Liquids yes, gasses yes, solids no

How is energy involved in changing form among solids liquids and gases?

Because there is a freezing point, a boiling point so Solids can change into liquids and liquids can change into gases and all over again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What property easily changes in gases but does not easily change in solids?

shape and volume

What properties do only gases have?

Gases have the property of indefinite shape and volume, as they expand to fill any container. They also have low density compared to liquids and solids. Gases can be compressed and expand easily when heated.

If cooled does most solids change into gases?

No, cooling solids typically causes them to contract and become denser, rather than changing into gases. Cooling a substance lowers the kinetic energy of its molecules, which reduces the distance between them and causes the solid to solidify further. However, if the solid sublimes (changes directly from solid to gas), then cooling could cause it to transition into a gas.

What are the properties of the solids liquids gases?

solids cannot be poured , they cannot also change shape unless you bend it , break a bit of it or melt it. liquids can be poured. gases can not be condensed down

Does change in pressure affect the solubility of solids?

No, a change in pressure typically does not affect the solubility of solids in liquid solvents. Solids are generally not significantly affected by changes in pressure as compared to gases.

How can volume be use to separate solids and gases?

Solids have a definite volume and gases have a variable volume
