Can I Please Get Some Help?
Entropy is the degree of disorder in a system. This all has to do with the degree of disorder in the molecules. The molecules in a solid do not move, they are stationary, the molecules in a liquid can move but do not move as much as the molecules in a gas.

if Your Willing To Help Me On It
take a look at what's happening to the atoms in my poorly drawn figure.
molecules in a solid are highly ordered, giving definite shape and volume.
in a liquid theres' also intermolecular forces or attractions between molecules, they can slide over each other and helps to give you the physical properties of a liquid. a liquid has a definite volume but no definite shape. liquid will take shape of the container.
gas particles can move freely and have no definite volume and shape, as they've overcome intermolecular forces.
