Types of Matter OR States of Matter?

Since, our childhood we know there are actually three states of matter that is solid, liquid and gas.

In higher studies, we aware about two more states which are plasma and condensate.

But what we have not noticed is this that why these are called States not Types?

Since, these forms of matter are interchangeable means they can be converted from there one form to another. Therfore, these are known as States.

While the things we get naturally like stones, wood are the types of solid because they are can’t be changed from one genre to another.

So, we are now familiar with the difference inbetween States and Types.

    There are actually 7 states but ig all the plasma are termed as one which Bose-Einstein condensate which makes them 5. I’m not quite sure about it though…. Btw nice post😊

      Right! 2 different plasma states (ionized and quark gluon), 2 more condensates (Bose-Einstein and Fermi condensate) and then ofcourse the elementary states. There are 7 indeed.
