What is the difference between movement of particles between solids and gases with an example?

The solids have stronger intermolecular force and the particles in a solid matter are closely packed to each other. That is the reason it's hard to break a solid particle just because of the strong covalent bonds between the atoms of a solid particle. However, in gases, atoms are extremely loosely packed, even though they are very far from each other and are alaway in a haphazard type of motion, and that's why a gas can be easily broken or degraded. In other words, it can also be articulated that the intermolecular force in a gaseous matter is extremely poorly or loosely bonded. Moreover, it is also noted that a gas can be condensed back into a liquid state by cooling it and in this way, the force of attraction or the intermolecular force between the particles can be improved.

All in all, we can assert from this discussion that Solids are strongly packed particles and are not easily breakable. Then comes the liquid where the particles are loosely packed together and can be partially breakable or can be easily breakable as compared to solid particles. And gases are the least, where particles are not packed together and have a very rare intermolecular strength.

Particles in liquids move around each other,while particles in gases move quickly in all directions

Explanation:
particles movement is determined by the energy they have and their relation to other particles.
In liquids there is a mild force of attraction between the particles, it holds them together but at the same time allow their free movment,while in a gas,There is no force of attraction between the particles,so they move randomly
