Problem

In a gas, the distance between the particles is 

a. small relative to the size of the molecules 

b. fixed relative to the size of the molecules. 

c. very close relative to the size of the molecules 

d. close relative to the size of the molecules 

e. very large relative to the size of the molecules

Solution

We are asked to identify what is true among the given choices with respect to the distance between the particles in a gas and its size.

Let us define a gasGas is one of the states of matter, the other two being liquid and solid, which molecules are randomly distributed in space

The molecules in a gas are known to be significantly far from each other
