    The particle of a gas are very far apart from each other.


    The states of matter comprises of solid, liquid and gas. The molecules of gas are free because they are not tightly held together by molecular force. The force between the molecules has been broken, hence the particles possesses the freedom to move about thereby possessing high kinetic energy (energy possessed by a body due to its motion). Since this molecules can easily move freely, they are always far apart from each other under ordinary temperature and pressure.
