LIQUID

, a fluid which wets or smears such bodies as are immersed in it, arising from some configuration of its particles, which disposes them to adhere to the surfaces of bodies contiguous to them. Thus water, oil, milk, &c, are Liquids, as well as fluids; but quicksilver is not a Liquid, but simply a fluid.
