Amorphous solids can also be called (a) pseudo solids (b) true solids (c) super cooled liquids (d) super cooled solids


(a, c) Amorphous solid has short range order which has a tendency to flow very slowly. Hence, it is also known as pseudo solids or super cooled liquids. Glass panes fixed to windows or doors of old buildings are invariably observed to be thicker at bottom than at the top. These are examples of amorphous solids.
