milk can be carried only in a container. explain from the molecular point of view
The state of Milk is liquid. In Liquids, the atoms or molecules are not strongly bounded as in solids and will have free movement of atoms. They do have attractive forces but not as strong as in solids. They have definite volume but do not have definite shape. They take the shape of the container in which they are kept. As the atoms or molecules in liquids are not strongly bonded by intermolecular forces of attraction, they are not rigid like solids and have property of free flowing unless stored in a container. Hence milk being liquid should be carried only by storing in a vessel or container.
