Q- Why are Solids rigid?
Answer- Solids are rigid because the intermolecular force of attraction in a solid is very high and this intermolecular force of attraction restricts the molecules from moving from their position. That’s the reason solids are rigid in nature.
- Why do solids have a definite volume?
- What type of solids are electrical conductors, malleable and ductile
- Classify the following as amorphous or crystalline solids polyurethane
Why are solids rigid according to Ncert?
The solids have a very high intermolecular force of attrition and this force makes the molecules of the solid get fixed in the same position without any movement. So, this makes solids rigid in nature.
What is solid rigidity?
Solid rigidity refers to the capability of any solid substance to stay rigid and have a very strong intermolecular force of attraction. The rigidity of any solid substance is high because of its high intermolecular force.
