There are two types of solids.
1 : - Crystalline solids 2 : - Amorphous solids
Crystalline solids : -
Crystalline solids posses these basic properties :
i) They have geometrical shape.
ii) They have 2-D arrangements of particles of high order.
iii) These are bounded to faces or planes.
iv) Crystal planes intersect at a specific angle.
v) They have sharp boiling point and melting point.
Example : - Diamond
Amorphous solids : -
Amorphous solids posses these basic properties :
i) Particles are randomly arranged in these solids.
ii) They don't posses sharp melting point.
iii) These solids are formed due to spontaneous cooling of liquid.
iv) they have a wide range of melting point.
Example : - Plastic, Rubber
