There are 5 types of liquid crystals:
Liquid Phase → molecules are arranged randomly
Nematic liquid crystalline phase → long axes of molecules aligned, but ends are not aligned
At three different temperatures T1, T2, and T3, the molecules in a liquid crystal align in these ways:
At T2, which type of liquid crystalline phase is depicted?
