Liquid is one of the four fundamental states of matter.

History and specifics[]

Liquid is the most common state in such continuums as fluidic space, where vacuums aren't as abundant in space. Liquid is described as a fluid of neutrally-charged atoms, bonded together by molecular attraction. A liquid has fixed volume, but shape is determined by its container. In other instances, such as solids and gases, liquid can also be classified as either "living" or "non-living". Liquids have much the same properties as solids in conductivity and sound wave transfer, but loses its natural form when thermally raised (evaporation) or lowered (condensation/sublimation). Often, under proper circumstances, the transition can altogether become that of plasma.

Some examples of a liquid (in these forms) are water, changelings and the Species 8472 universe.
