What is the difference between amorphous and crystalline solids? Amorphous solids are highly structured, while crystalline solids are disorganized. Amorphous solids are disorganized, while crystalline solids are highly structured. Amorphous solids have well defined melting points, while crystalline solids do not. Amorphous solids break along planes, crystalline solids break in irregular shapes.

    Crystalline Solid==> 1)The various constituent particles (atoms, ions or molecules) are arranged in a definite geometric pattern within the solids. 2)They possess a long range order. 3)They have a sharp melting point 4)They show different properties along different directions. 5)they are also called true solids Amorphous solids=> 1) The various constituent particles are not arranged in any regular manner 2)They possess a short range order. 3)They have high melting point in range. 4)They are isotropic in nature, i.e, they show similar physical properties along any direction. 5)They are called pseudo solids and are considered as supercooled liquids.
