What would you like to do?
A molecule of liquid water to a molecule of water vapor?
What process is it when water molecules speed up or slow down when water vapor returns to the liquid water state?
If I'm reading your question correctly the answer is condensation, I believe.
The molecules slow down.
Do the fastest or slowest moving molecules break away from the surface of liquid water to form water vapor?
The fastest moving water molecules will break away from the surfrace of the water to form water vapor, they have the energy to overcome the attractive forces between molecules….
Water molecules in ICE are much "closer" packed. However, they are still vibrating a little bit. Water molecules in VAPOR are much "farther apart". They spread out as far as… they can and bounce around in their container like jumping beans.
humid air is lighter that an equal volume of dry air at the same temperature.
Once the water vapor starts to lose heat or starts to cool down it turns back into water which is known as condensation.
The heat heats up the liquid changing it into a gas the molecules in a gas are spread apart and move fast but the molecules are the same because they are water molecules
LIQUID-spread apart and moving but not too much. GAS-spread around and moving at a rapid pace. SOLID-Compact and stuck to eachother. Think of it like this. When you add heat t…o water you know it turns into gas. Whats happening is that the molecules are getting crazy and moving all around. ~answered by a student studing for a test. :)
What is the process called when fast moving molecules break away from the surface of liquid water to from water vapor?
evaporation i think but i am not sure
