# Which state of matter has particles that are negatively and positively charged?

Nov 19, 2016

All states of matter have this property.

#### Explanation:

You might have to rethink this question. All states of matter, $\text{solids, liquids, and gases,}$ are composed of atoms, which in turn are composed of positively and neutrally charged, massive particles, and negatively charged particles of negligible mass. The number of positively charged particles gives the identity of the element.

The question MAY have referred to ionic solids, which are composed of a non-molecular lattice of positively charged, and negatively charged ions, that are held together by strong electrostatic forces.
