Flowing freely like water; fluid; not solid.
Being in such a state that the component molecules move freely among themselves, but have a definite volume changing only slightly with changes of pressure, and do not tend to separate from each other as the particles of gases and vapors do when the volume of the container is increased; neither solid nor gaseous; as, liquid mercury, in distinction from mercury solidified or in a state of vapor.
Fluid and transparent; as, the liquid air.
A substance whose parts change their relative position on the slightest pressure, and therefore retain no definite form; any substance in the state of liquidity; a fluid that is not gaseous and has a definite volume independent, of the container in which it is held. Liquids have a fixed volume at any given pressure, but their shape is determined by the container in which it is contained. Liquids, in contrast to gases, cannot expand indefinitely to fill an expanding container, and are only slightly compressible by application of pressure.
A substance that flows freely and therefore conforms to the shape of the walls of its container, but cannot expand to fill the container.
(clouds, oceans, ponds, and streams): A fluid (as water) that does not have an independent shape but does have a definite volume.
A state of matter that has a high density and is incompressible compared to a gas. Liquids take the shape of their container but do not expand to fill the container as gases do. Liquids diffuse much more slowly than gases.
A state of matter in which the substance assumes the shape of its container, flows readily, and maintains a fairly constant volume.
Substance that undergoes continuous deformation when subjected to shearing stress.
a physical state in which a substance has definite volume, but no definite shape. A liquid will flow into a container and can be changed into a solid by cooling and into a gas by heating.
1. Readily flowing fluid whose molecules move freely with respect to each other, unlike a solid, but not expanding indefinitely like a gas because of cohesive forces. 2. Financial status whereby an individual or business can convert a significant percentage of assets to cash quickly. 3. Characteristic of an investment. Indicates that the investment can be quickly sold or converted to cash.
state of matter with fixed volume but no fixed shape; a state characterized by particles in such close proximity that their random motion appears to be a vibration about a moving point; a form of matter that is fluid, has a fixed volume, and takes the shape of its container. (see gas, solid)
The state of matter in which a substance flows freely and lacks crystal structure. Unlike a gas, a liquid retains the same volume independent of the shape of its container.
a state of matter in which the molecules or atoms are close together but also move around each other
A liquid is the phase of a substance which has no definite shape but keeps a definite volume. As an example using H20, ice is the solid phase, water is the liquid phase, and steam is the gas phase.
A fluid (such as water) that has no independent shape but has a definite volume and does not expand indefinitely and that is slightly compressible.
A state of matter where molecules have the ability to flow and the surface of this mass displays the property of surface tension.
The part of the hydrologic cycle in which molecules move freely among themselves but do not separate like those in a vapor/gaseous state.
a state of matter in which the molecules are touching, fluid, incompressible.
lick-wid Something made of particles fairly close together, but with bonds that are less strong than in solids. The particles can move past each other in a liquid.
A fluid that is incompressible (has a fixed volume) and assumes the shape of the bottom of its container. See also: Gas
a state of matter where the particles of the matter can move freely and take the shape the container
the form of matter that is a relatively incompressible fluid; a liquid has a fixed volume, but no fixed shape.
Term used to describe a market where there are lots of buyers and sellers generating much volume.
One of the states of matter between a solid and a gas characterised by particles which have motion but which are attracted to each other, by taking the shape but not necessarily filling a container and by being almost incompressible.
A fluid phase of matter (which also includes gases and plasmas) in which the particles are in direct contact with each other at all times, leaving very little empty space between them, and making the material relatively dense and incompressible.
A substance where molecules push outward and downward and seek a uniform level.
phase has a molecular spacing not much different from that of the solid phase, except the molecules are no longer at fixed positions relative to each other. In a liquid, chunks of molecules float about each other; however, the molecules maintain an orderly structure within each chunk and retain their original positions with respect to one another. The distances between molecules generally experience a slight increase as a solid turns liquid, with water being a rare exception.
a substance that is liquid at room temperature and pressure
the state in which a substance exhibits a characteristic readiness to flow with little or no tendency to disperse and relatively high incompressibility
a substance in the fluid state of matter having no fixed shape but a fixed volume
changed from a solid to a liquid state; "rivers filled to overflowing by melted snow"
a fluid which is incompressible or practically so, i
a formless fluid
a form of matter that is a fairly incompressible
a sample of matter that conforms to the shape of a container in which it is held, and which acquires a defined surface in the presence of gravity
a state of matter in which a sample of matter flows and can change its shape
a state of matter that has a definite size or volume but not a definite shape
a state of matter which it is more dense than a gas and less dense than a solid
a substance which takes the shape of it's container and has a fixed volume at a given temperature and pressure
the form of matter in which the molecules flow.
A substance whose molecules are in constant, random motion but do not move as fast as those in a gas. A liquid can take on the shape of its container but keeps the same volume, no matter what container it's in.
A state of matter, neither gas nor solid, that flows and takes the shape of its container.
A state of matter of no definite shape, high incompressibility, and a tendency to flow and disperse.
a fluid in a state intermediate between a solid and a gas, it tends to take the shape of its container, remain at the bottom of the container; the volume of a liquid changes little with changes in pressure; molecules move freely past one another
A liquid is matter with no definite shape and a definite volume. A liquid takes the shape of its container. In a liquid, the molecules move and slide around each other.
Liquid is a state of matter. Liquid molecules hold together weakly, so liquids flow. Liquids do not change their volumes significantly but do change their shapes easily.
A substance that, unlike a solid, flows readily but, unlike a gas, does not tend to expand indefinitely.
The state of matter where the material has a definite volume, but not a definite shape. A liquid takes on the shape of its container.
fluid matter that takes the shape of its container.
a free flowing substance that borrows the shape of its container.
The phase of matter in which a substance has a definite volume but no definite shape.
one of the four states of matter. Liquids have a definite volume, but take the shape of their container. The particles glide easily past each other (liquids are fluids). Liquids, compared to gases, have a relatively high density and are incompressible. Surface tension and evaporation are characteristics of liquids.
a substance that is neither solid nor a gas
The middle stage of matter that has a fixed volume and a fixed mass, but not a fixed shape. A liquid takes the shape of the container that it itâ€™s in.
one of the basic three phases of matter; characterized by free movement of the constituent molecules among themselves but without the tendency to separate
a state of matter with definite volume but no definite shape, like water
A form of matter that can flow easily and takes on the shape of any container into which it is poured. liquid like milk can be poured from a square milk carton into a round glass.
A state of matter in which the molecules are in contact with one another but can move freely among one another. [Friedman 1989
State of matter having a definite size, but not shape.
The condition in the market where there is ample amount of volume to buy or sell.
any substance that flows readily or changes in response to the smallest influence. More generally, any substance in which the force required to produce a deformation depends on the rate of deformation rather than on the magnitude of the deformation.
Liquid is a phase of matter in which the molecules are close together and can move around slowly.
one of the three states of matter; has a fixed volume but takes the shape of its container.
A liquid is one of the main states of matter. It is a fluid whose shape is usually determined by the container it fills. Liquid particles (normally molecules or clusters of molecules) are free to move within the liquid volume, but their mutual attraction limits ability of particles to leave the volume.
