Best Answer

The particles themselves don't change, but their behavior does. If you are simply heating a solid, but not to the point of a phase change, the particles remain locked in place but they vibrate faster. If you heat a solid to the point that it goes through a phase change, the particles start to vibrate fast enough to break the intermolecular bonds and keep them broken enough to allow the particles to slide past and around one another.

What happens to the particles of a substance when thermal energy is added to the substance?

It's particles move faster


How do particles in a solid substance change with energy added?

The substance will start melting and then boiling because the particles will start crashing to each other so they will start moving.


What happens to particles of a substance when thermal energy is added to the substance?

It gets warmer.


Why may the temperature of a substance change when energy is added?

The energy has to go somewhere. If heat energy is added, it will either increase the temperature, or change the state of matter of the substance.


Heat is what in motion?

As energy is added to a substance, the particles that make up the substance vibrate faster. This is what causes substances to change state (solid to liquid to gas). As the particles move faster, the structure changes.


How does the behaviour of particles change as energy is added to particles?

energy makes particles move.The more energy the particles have,the faster they can move and they farther apart they can get.


What has to be added to a substance to cause a phase change?

Heat energy must be added to or subtracted from a substance to cause a phase change.


What happens to particles inside of a solid liquid or gas when energy is added compared to when energy is removed?

When energy is added the particles inside the substance vibrate more. Conversely, the vibrate less when energy is removed.


What is a measure of the energy of motion of particles in a substance?

Particle motion increases as energy (like heat) is added. The motion slows as energy leaves. Temperature is a measure of this change in particle motion.


Which change in state requires that energy be added to the substance?

vaporizing


How will a substance change if energy is added to the liquid at 20 degrees Celsius?

The substance will get hawter


How will the substance change if energy is added to the liquid at 20 degrees celsius?

the substance will get hotter.


What happens when particles in a substance when energy is removed?

The substance's particals will start slowing down and come closer together. As kinetic energy is removed from a substance, it will do the opposite as when kinetic energy is added to a substance.


What happens to a substances energy during a phase change?

If you are freezing, Energy is taken away from the substance If you are heating, Energy is added to the substance


How does a substance change when its thermal energy changes?

For example, when heat energy (thermal energy) is added to a substance, either its temperature will increase, or it will change its state (as when ice is melted).


How will a substance change if energy is added to the liquid at 20c?

it makes the substence colder


Why does evaporation require that heat energy be added to a substance?

Heat is energy the substance needs to change it's state of matter (the more energy a substance has the higher it's temperature)


The particles of a substance will move faster if what is added on to them?

If heat is added to it.


What happens when you add energy to a substance?

when you add energy the substance it gets warmer!! The energy that is added too a substance during a change of state is used too break the attractions between particles!! so, the temperature does not change until the change in state is complete! energy change from solid to liquid: melting increases change from liquid to gas: evaporation increases change from gas to liquid: condensation decreases change from liquid to solid: freezing decreases change from solid to gas: sublimation increases


Do particles melt?

I'm assuming you are talking about sub-atomic particles. The act of melting cannot be applied to particles because melting refers to a change of state of a substance. Substances, whether they be compounds or elemental, are a collection of atoms. These atoms, can be of 3 different states, depending on their temperature. If below the particular substance's melting point, it is solid. Between the melting and boiling point, the substance is liquid, and above the boiling point, the substance is gaseous. The state of the substance refers to the total amount of energy within the substance. Heat is energy, and melting a substance is only adding energy to it. the substance, on a molecular level, does not change when melting occurs. Therefore, melting a particle cannot occur, only energy can be added, which increases movement of the particles.


What substance can change from a liquid to a gas on its own without energy needing to be added?

water


What happens to the particles in matter when thermal energy is added?

When thermal energy is added to particles of matter, it causes the particles to move faster and emit more energy.


How does the space between particles change as energy is added to the particles?

When heat is added to a particle, it will get more exited and move faster. The more heat you add, the faster the particles will move, and the further form one another they will be. Therefore, adding energy to the particles will also increase the spaces between them.

What change in state requires an energy to be added to the substance?

All in the sequence : solid -> liquid -> gas -> plasma.
