Liquid State

The liquid state is in intermediate state between gaseous state and solid state. In this state particles are close to each other and have strong interparticle forces than gaseous state but not as strong as in solid state. However, unlike solids, particles in liquids do not occupy fixed positions and possess translatory motion also. Because of translatory motion of the particles, the liquids are neither rigid nor do have definite shape i.e. they can flow.
