  1. Gases have mass.
  2. Gases take up space.
  3. Gases can apply a force, which we call pressure. The atmosphere, or the air around us, is constantly applying pressure and has enough power to crush a can or to hold a suction cup into place.
  4. Gases fill their containers completely. The space it takes up is referred to as the volume.
    Gases are easily compressible, meaning that the volume can be forced into smaller spaces by increasing the air pressure.
  5. Gases can move through one another, or diffuse, easily.
  6. The pressure of a gas depends on the temperature.
