This image shows different speeds of particles in a gas, and how the speed can vary.

Distance from each other Compared to Other Phases of Matter:

Gas particles are farther away from each other than in liquid or solid state.

This image shows the distance of particles in a gas from each other changing depending on the pressure applied to them.
