The space between the constituent particles are maximum in gases.Give reason.
We know that matter around us exists in three different states - solids liquids and gases. The fact that the spaces between the constituents of a gas is maximum is in fact a fundamental property of the gas and not a consequence of some other reason. The molecules in gases have the largest intermolecular spaces between them. It is because of this that the intermolecular forces between the particles of a solid are minimum. The fact that gases can be easily compresses, exert pressure and can diffuse is also because of large intermolecular spaces between them.
