Describing the Properties of Gases

Gases have three characteristic properties: (1) they are easy to compress, (2) they expand to fill their containers, and (3) they occupy far more space than the liquids or solids from which they form. There are several basic properties of gases which differentiate gases from liquids and solids: (1) A gas has no definite shape or volume, it will expand to fill its container. (2) A gas is easily compressible. (3) Gases form homogeneous mixtures with each other (without exception).
