Is air a solid or a liquid?

Gas can be compressed much more easily than a liquid or solid. (Think about a diving tank – 600 L of gas is compressed into a 3 L cylinder.) Right now, you are breathing in air – a mixture of gases containing many elements such as oxygen and nitrogen. Water vapour is the gaseous form or state of water.

Beside this, is a gas a fluid?

In physics, a fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases, plasmas, and to some extent, plastic solids. Liquids form a free surface (that is, a surface not created by the container) while gases do not.

Is compressed air a fluid?

Gas duster, also known as canned air, is a product used for cleaning or dusting electronic equipment and other sensitive devices that cannot be cleaned using water. Despite the name "canned air", the cans actually contain gases that are compressable into liquids.
