FLUID substance which deforms continuously when subjected to a shear stress 


LIQUID no fixed shape deforms under gravity to container shape virtually incompressible = constant volume

GAS expands to fill container, mass m constant but volume V dependent upon pressure p and Temperature T (i.e. ideal gas pV=mRT)
