# How does a change in thermal energy cause matter to change from one state to another?

###### Wiki User

It causes matter to change by turning the water into gas which is vaporization, turning water into ice.

An increase in thermal energy may change a solid to a liquid, a liquid to a gas, or a solid to a gas.A decrease in thermal energy may cause a change in the opposite direction - for example, from a liquid to a solid.

yes. Matter can change state when thermal energy is absorbed or released.

Matter I think I'm not 100% shure but it say in my book matter in one state often can change to another state by adding or removing thermal energy

When you add thermal energy to matter, either the temperature will increase, or there will be a change in the state (phase) of matter, for example when ice melts.

Yes, for instance potential energy can change into kientic energy and electromagnetic raditaion energy can change into thermal or chemical energy. It is also possible to change matter into energy and energy into matter.

For the matter of thermal energy transfer ,it required temperature difference. For the matter of changing form, it would still required a temperature difference with some mechanism transforming thermal energy into mechanical or electrical energy.

For thermal energy, thermodynamics. For energy of movement, mechanics.

Mechanical, thermal, chemical, electromagnetic, electrical, and nuclear are six forms of energy related to change in matter.

A liquid can expand when thermal energy is absorbed which is known as thermal expansion, but the thermal energy is not enough to change the liquid's state. When there is enough thermal energy, the liquid may change to a gas if the particles move fast enough to escape the liquid or it may change to a solid if the thermal energy is released from the matter.

when you add thermal energy to matter, the matter starts moving faster.

when thermal energy is added to matter,the particals in the matter move faster.

Everything, all matter within existence is subject to the transfer of thermal energy. Thermodynamics help us to understand how matter will behave when undergoing a change in thermal energy.

It causes matter to change by turning water into gas which is vaporization. water into ice and burning wood into ash.

You change one state of matter to another by heating the matter or cooling it [aka] adding energy or removing the energy

thermal energy will always radiate to lower energy matter.

gas has the most thermal energy and solids have the least thermal energy

a change of state usually means a change from a solid-liquid, liquid-gas, liquid-solid, solid-gas. Thermal energy uses heat which helps the changes of the matter state. With that information if the thermal energy changes so will the speed of the change of state.

this process is the process of gaining thermal energy. As any matter changes state from solid to any other form it will require energy. As energy is exerted on the solid perssure or electric or thermal or other type, the solid will obsorb the energy and change state. The solid thereby will in turn and at a ratio, increase the thermal energy it consumes.

because thermal energy always flows from warmer matter to cooler matter
