Material definition query


What is the effect of mentioning ‘kStateSolid’ for any material definition. What will be the implications for my tally output or particle interactions if I use ‘kStateGas’ or liquid.

G4Material* HDPE = new G4Material( "Polyethylene_TS" , density = 0.97 * g/cm3 , ncomponents = 2, kStateSolid, 296*kelvin, 1*atmosphere);

Thanks very much!

no difference for kStateSolid and kStateLiquid. In contrary, kStateGas may besome differences. For gasses density, temperature, and pressure should be consistent.
