In general, when a liquid is heated it will expand at a greater rate than a solid.The atoms themselves do not expand, but the volume they take up does. The molecules are not arranged in the tightly constructed lattice solids have. A liquid's molecules will have a definite volume, but will assume the shape of the container they occupy. This is in direct contrast to the molecules of a solid which has both definite volume and definite shape.
