Q.6:- Give two reasons to justify that:
(a) Water at room temperature is a liquid.
(b) An iron almirah is a solid at room temperature.

 

Answer:-

(a) Water is a liquid at room temperature due to following reasons :
(i) Water has not fixed shape but fixed volume. It takes the shape of the container.
(ii) Water can flow easily hence it is not rigid but a fluid.

(b) An iron almirah is a solid at room temperature due to following reasons :
(i) An almirah has a fixed shape and a fixed volume.
(ii) It cannot flow, hence it is rigid.
