Is "liquid" accountable?

I saw a sentence today.

Condensation occurs when gas becomes into a liquid.

Q: Why is there an "a" in above sentence?

已更新項目:

Sorry, it's my fault.

"accountable" ---> "countable"

Thanks for serenade.

    It depends what kind of "liquid" you're referring to. One simple example that you can look up at online dictionary:

    "Oil, milk and water are all liquids."

    As to your question here, it just defines "a" (kind of) liquid, but it does not limit to "water".

    These formations -- liquid, gas and solid can be countable or uncountable.

    Fantastic 是對的 +1

    但不是 a kind of liquid.

    應該是 a type of liquid.

    kind 跟 type 的意思跟用法可完全不一樣, 想知道的話就放個問題上來吧 :D

    "a" means "a kind of",so, that is, liquid is not countable.
