What are the properties of a liquid?
Liquids take on the shape of their container. The liquid state of matter is an intermediate phase between solid and gas. Like the particles of a solid, particles in a liquid are subject to intermolecular attraction; however, liquid particles have more space between them, so they are not fixed in position.
Special properties of liquid :
These molecules will have minimal cohesion. In contrast, water molecules use hydrogen bonding (very strong), so they display strong cohesion.
A cohesive liquid will form more spherical droplets and have much higher surface tension.
Adhesion is the attraction of a liquid molecule to its surroundings.
