Amorphous solids lack a definite long-range order in their atomic arrangement, whereas crystalline solids possess a regular and repeating pattern. In amorphous solids, the arrangement of particles is more random, leading to properties like isotropy and no well-defined melting point. Crystalline solids have a specific geometric arrangement, resulting in anisotropic properties and a well-defined melting point. Examples of amorphous solids include glass and plastics, while crystals such as diamond and salt are crystalline solids.
