Liquids (LIQ) have a specific volume and can hold any shape it is contained within.  Depending on its elements, the density and weight will vary. A liquids molecules are close together with no particular pattern and continually move past each other, this allows it to flow and move about.  Having little space between the molecules leaves little room to compress.  Liquid is one of the four phases of matter (gas, liquid, plasma, and solid).
