Gaseous State

A gas has neither a definite (fixed) shape nor a definite (fixed) volume. It occupies any space available to them and can be compressed easily. If it is colourless like air, it cannot be seen. However, its motion can be felt

In substances where the molecular movement is so fast that it overcomes the intermolecular attractive forces, the molecules are far removed from one another. The spaces between them are very large, and they can have free movement. Such substances are in the gaseous state. The molecules in the gaseous state are loosely packed. The intermolecular distances are very large and a lot of empty space is available. Therefore gases can be compressed easily and to a large extent.
