The particles in a solid are held together by forces which prevents them from changing shape (or moving away from each other). When a solid turns into a liquid, the particles get enough energy to wiggle away from each other and thus break out of formation. That's why liquids don't have a specific shape. Think of the solid as a bunch of babies who are asleep and are tied together by a piece of rope. You give them some sugar and they become hyper and start to wiggle away from each other. That's what happens when a solid becomes a liquid.

no. I told you that the babies (particles) get enough energy to move away from each other and never come back to formation. They keep moving around. In a solid, they weren't moving around at all. Now that they're liquid, they keep moving around until they hit a wall (the wall of a jug, for example). They then change direction and keep moving. So what do you think?
