Liquidnoun

A substance that is flowing, and keeping no shape, such as water; a substance of which the molecules, while not tending to separate from one another like those of a gas, readily change their relative position, and which therefore retains no definite shape, except that determined by the containing receptacle; an inelastic fluid.

‘A liquid can freeze to become a solid or evaporate into a gas.’;

Fluidnoun

Any substance which can flow with relative ease, tends to assume the shape of its container, and obeys Bernoulli's principle; a liquid, gas or plasma.

Liquidnoun

(phonetics) A class of consonant sounds that includes l and r.

Fluidnoun

Intravenous fluids.

Liquidadjective

Flowing freely like water; fluid; not solid and not gaseous; composed of particles that move freely among each other on the slightest pressure.

‘liquid nitrogen’;

Fluidadjective

(not comparable) Of or relating to fluid.

Fluidadjective

Moving smoothly, or giving the impression of a liquid in motion.

Liquidadjective

Flowing or sounding smoothly or without abrupt transitions or harsh tones.

Liquidadjective

(phonology) Pronounced without any jar or harshness; smooth.

‘L and R are liquid letters.’;

Fluidadjective

(rare) Genderfluid.

Liquidadjective

Fluid and transparent.

‘the liquid air’;

Fluidadjective

Having particles which easily move and change their relative position without a separation of the mass, and which easily yield to pressure; capable of flowing; liquid or gaseous.

Liquidadjective

Flowing freely like water; fluid; not solid.

‘Yea, though he go upon the plane and liquid water which will receive no step.’;

Fluidnoun

A fluid substance; a body whose particles move easily among themselves.

Liquidadjective

Being in such a state that the component molecules move freely among themselves, but have a definite volume changing only slightly with changes of pressure, and do not tend to separate from each other as the particles of gases and vapors do when the volume of the container is increased; neither solid nor gaseous; as, liquid mercury, in distinction from mercury solidified or in a state of vapor.

Fluidnoun

a substance that is fluid at room temperature and pressure

Liquidadjective

Flowing or sounding smoothly or without abrupt transitions or harsh tones.

Fluidnoun

a continuous amorphous substance that tends to flow and to conform to the outline of its container: a liquid or a gas

Liquidadjective

Pronounced without any jar or harshness; smooth; as, l and r are liquid letters.

Fluidadjective

subject to change; variable;

‘a fluid situation fraught with uncertainty’; ‘everything was unstable following the coup’;

Liquidadjective

Fluid and transparent; as, the liquid air.

Fluidadjective

Liquidadjective

Fluidadjective

smooth and unconstrained in movement;

‘a long, smooth stride’; ‘the fluid motion of a cat’; ‘the liquid grace of a ballerina’; ‘liquid prose’;

Liquidadjective

In cash or readily convertible into cash without loss of principle; - said of assets, such as bank accounts, or short-term bonds tradable on a major stock exchange.

Fluidadjective

‘liquid (or fluid) assets’;

Liquidnoun

A substance whose parts change their relative position on the slightest pressure, and therefore retain no definite form; any substance in the state of liquidity; a fluid that is not gaseous and has a definite volume independent, of the container in which it is held. Liquids have a fixed volume at any given pressure, but their shape is determined by the container in which it is contained. Liquids, in contrast to gases, cannot expand indefinitely to fill an expanding container, and are only slightly compressible by application of pressure.

Fluidadjective

affording change (especially in social status);

‘Britain is not a truly fluid society’; ‘upwardly mobile’;

Liquidnoun

A letter which has a smooth, flowing sound, or which flows smoothly after a mute; as, l and r, in bla, bra. M and n also are called liquids.

Fluidnoun

a substance that has no fixed shape and yields easily to external pressure; a gas or (especially) a liquid

‘body fluids’; ‘a bottle of cleaning fluid’;

Liquidnoun

a substance that is liquid at room temperature and pressure

Fluidadjective

(of a substance) able to flow easily

‘the paint is more fluid than tube watercolours’;

Liquidnoun

the state in which a substance exhibits a characteristic readiness to flow with little or no tendency to disperse and relatively high incompressibility

Fluidadjective

smoothly elegant or graceful

‘her movements were fluid and beautiful to watch’;

Liquidnoun

a substance in the fluid state of matter having no fixed shape but a fixed volume

Fluidadjective

not settled or stable; likely or able to change

‘the fluid political situation of the 1930s’; ‘our plans are still fluid’;

Liquidnoun

a frictionless non-nasal continuant (especially `l' and `r')

Fluidadjective

(of a clutch or coupling) using a liquid to transmit power.

Liquidadjective

existing as or having characteristics of a liquid; especially tending to flow;

‘water and milk and blood are liquid substances’; ‘ice is water in the solid state’;

Fluid

In physics, a fluid is a liquid, gas, or other material that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress, or external force. They have zero shear modulus, or, in simpler terms, are substances which cannot resist any shear force applied to them.

Liquidadjective

filled or brimming with tears;

‘swimming eyes’; ‘watery eyes’; ‘sorrow made the eyes of many grow liquid’;

Liquid

A liquid is a nearly incompressible fluid that conforms to the shape of its container but retains a (nearly) constant volume independent of pressure. As such, it is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being solid, gas, and plasma), and is the only state with a definite volume but no fixed shape.
