General characterishics of solid states
The following are the characteristic propeties of the solid state
1. They hare definite mass, volume and shape.
2. Intermolecular distance are short.
3. Intermolecular forces are strong.
4. Their constituent particles (atoms/molecules/ions) have fixed positions and can only oscillate
about their mean position .
5. They are incompressible and rigid.

Such solids which hare difinite volume and structure and do not lose their shapes are called true solids
eg. NaCl,KCl, sugar, Fe, Ag, Cu etc.

Whereas solids which lose shapes on long standing and flows under its own weight and get distorted
are called pseudo solids super cooled liquids. e.g. glass.

Ordered arrangement :
In solids there is ordered arrangement of the particles of the solid (atoms/molecules/ions).
This ordered arrangement is of two types
1. Long range order, and 2. Short range order.

“Long range order”
In long range order there is a regular pattem of arrangement of particle which represents itself
periodically over the entire solid.

“Short range order :”
In short range order the regular arrangement is periodically repeated over short distances only. On the
basis of the nature of the order, solids can be classified as crystalline solids and amorphous solids.

Crystalline solids - In such solids there is a definite arrangement of particles throughout the
entire there dimentional network of a crystal. These solids thus have ‘long range order’. This three
dimentional arrangement of particle is called crystal lattice (or) space laltice eg. NaCl, KCl, Sugar,
quartz etc.

Amorphous solids - In such solids, particles do not have definite arrangement and thus are
‘short range order’ i.e. portions of regular arrangement are scaltered and in between them
arrangement is disordered. eg. glass
