Examples of solids in gas solutions include hydrogen in platinum and sulfur vapor in air. In chemistry and physics, there are three states of matter, which are solid, liquid and gas. From these states seven different typ... More »

Common examples of solids are wood, sand, ice, bricks and steel. Examples of liquids include water, blood, wine, coffee and rubbing alcohol. Some common gases are hydrogen, helium, propane, water vapor and gaseous nitrog... More »

A solid can turn directly into a gas through a process called sublimation. In this instance, the solid vaporizes without going through the intermediary liquid stage. For example, in the water cycle, this would involve sn... More »

Examples of solutions include water vapor in air, table sugar in water, steel, brass, hydrogen dissolved to palladium, carbon dioxide in water and ethanol in water. A solution is a homogeneous mixture of one substance di... More »

Filtration is the method through which solids are taken out of a liquid or gas combination. Examples of filtration include coffee filters to split up the coffee from the grounds, belt filters for extraction of precious m... More »

Examples of gases include oxygen, nitrogen, helium, hydrogen, argon, fluorine, krypton, neon, radon, xenon and chlorine. These gases are single elements, though many gases are compounds or mixtures. Such gases include ca... More »

Examples of plasma include solar wind, lightning, the gases in neon signs, welding arcs, interstellar gas clouds and the tails of comets. Plasma is the most common state of matter in the universe. A plasma occurs when a ... More »
