Gas 1Definition: An aeriform fluid; a term used at first by
chemists as synonymous with air, but since restricted to
fluids supposed to be permanently elastic, as oxygen, hydrogen,

liquified by cold and pressure, the term has resumed nearly its original signification, and is applied to any substance in the elastic or aeriform state.
