Crystalline Solids Vs Amorphous Solids - Comparison List

Difference Between Crystalline Solids And Amorphous Solids

A crystal or crystalline solid is a solid material whose constituents, such as atoms, molecules or ions, are arranged in a highly ordered microscopic structure, forming a crystal lattice that extends in all directions. In other hand Amorphous solid, any noncrystalline solid in which the atoms and molecules are not organized in a definite lattice pattern. Such solids include glass, plastic, and gel. Solids and liquids are both forms of condensed matter; both are composed of atoms in close proximity to each other.

Now we can see the Comparison b/w crystalline solids and amorphous Solids

Crystalline solids

  • Long range order
  • More rigid
  • Sharp melting point
  • Anisotropic
  • Able to cleaved along definite planes

Amorphous Solids

  • Short range order 
  • Less rigid
  • No sharp melting point
  • Isotropic
  • Irregular cleavage
