The behaviour of matter in different states


The behaviour of matter in different states is governed by various physical laws. According to you what are the factors that determine the state of matter?


The factors that determine the states of matter can be determined by 2 laws.

Charles Law

It states that when pressure is kept constant, the volume of an ideal gas (V) is directly proportional to the absolute temperature (T).

V1/T1 = V2/T2

Boyle’s Law.

It states that when the temperature is kept constant, the pressure of the given mass of an ideal gas (P) is inversely proportional to the volume(V).

P1V1 = P2V2

If we combine two laws,

P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2

So we get to know that pressure, volume and temperature along with mass are the factors which determine the state of matter.
