Solid is the state at which matter maintains a fixed volume and shape. While liquid is the state in which matter maintains a fixed volume but adapts to the shape of its container.

Solid state
1. Definite shape.
2. Bonds between particles are strongest.
3. Particles vibrate about a fixed position.

Liquid state
1. No definite shape.
2. Bonds between particles are less than in liquids.
3. Particles move about more freely (though randomly, and their movements are restricted).

Note that although the compressibility and volume of solids and liquids are properties, they're not included them, since they possess similar characteristics, and not differences.
