Can all elements be turned into a solid/liquid/gas?

In: 6

Yes it’s possible.

The toughest is getting solid Helium, as you need extremely low temperatures and high pressures.

What determines the state is the ratio between kinetic energy (temperature) moving atoms in random directions, and the attractive forces between the atoms. Since every atom has these forces, and they are always limited you can get every element into every state with the correct temperature+pressure

Yes, but you can’t get there by removing temperature alone for all of them. Helium needs a lot of pressure to become solid, no matter the heat
