The average speed of the particles increasesTemperature is a measure of the average speed of particles in a substance. If you increase the temperature of the substance, then the average speed of the particles in the substance increases.

What are the motion of the particles when the temperature rises and how does it affect the solubility?

As temperature increases, the motion of particles also increases. As motion increases, the particles become more soluble.

When thermal energy of an object increases do the particles stop moving?

No, when the temperature of an object increases its motion also increases because when temperature increases kinetic energy increases and thus the motion increases.

What happens to the particles of a substance when it is heated?

As temperature increases, particle motion increases proportionally.

What happens to the particles when heat is added?

the motion of the particles increases or decreases when the temperature increases or decreases. When added heat to Particles they move faster

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.

When the temperature of a gas increases the motion of gas particles?

Yes, as motion in any particle is equivalent to heat

Explain how the motion of particles in an object changes when its temperature increases?

When temperature increases the particles of an object gain more heat energy, therefore move faster colliding with each other more.

When an object increases in temperature do the particles speed up or slow down?

They speed up. Heat is actually molecular motion. Absolute zero (−459.67°F) is the temperature where the particles have no motion at all.

What does kinetic Molecule Theory tell us about the effect of temperature on the motion of particles?

It tells us that when the temperature increases so does the velocity of the individual particles. This makes them move around faster and bump into each other more often. the temperature increases the Kinetic energy of the particles

How does temperature inidcate how fast the paricles move?

when the temperature of particles is increased then their kinetic energy increases and their motion becomes so fast...

What happens to matter when its temperature increases or decreases?

Temperature measures the average random motion of the particles (usually molecules or atoms) of which matter is composed. Faster moving particles constitute a higher temperature.

How does the energy and motion of particles change as a substance is heated?

As a substance is heated, the particles that comprise the substance vibrate more and more violently and the energy that this motion represents increases.

When the temperature of water increases what happens to the motion of atoms?

When the temperature of water increases, the motion of the atoms accelerates.

What are the effects of a warm temperature on a gas particle?

As the temperature increases, so does the amount of Kinetic Energy [the energy of Motion] that the particles contain increase.

What happens to the motion of gas particles when their temperature increases?

They start to move faster, therefore, the reaction will happen quicker. This is because there is more chance of a collision between the particles.

Why is Brownian motion more intensive in higher temperature?

Brownian motion is the "jiggling" of macroscopic particles due to their bombardment by surrounding molecules as they move around. The direction of the force of atomic bombardment is constantly changing, and at different times the particle is hit more on one side than another, leading to the seemingly random nature of the motion. The size of the particles that can be thus affected is so small that it requires a microscope to observe the effect. As the temperature of a liquid or gas increases, the average velocity of the molecules increases. Faster motion means increased momentum for the molecules impacting the macroscopic particles, thus as temperature increases, so does Brownian motion.

What happens to the motion of an object's particles as the object's thermal energy increases?

Temperature is a measure of the kinetic energy of the atoms within an object. As temperature, or thermal energy increases the atoms become excited and move faster.

What is the definiton of temperature?

Temperature is a measure of the kinetic energy of the particles in motion. The faster the motion, the higher the temperature.

What change occurs in the movement of particles when temperature of matter is increased?

Typically as temperature increases, particles increase their translational, vibrational, rotational energy. In solids and liquids vibrational and rotational motion dominate as the type of motion. The particles vibrate with greater amplitude and rotate faster. Convection in liquids will increase. In gases and plasmas, while vibration and rotation are obviously contribute to the "movement" of the particles, the most obvious change is in the translational energy which manifests as faster average speed of motion as they fly around.

What does temperature have to do with the motion of particles that make up a substance?

The warmer the temperature, the faster the particles move.

What happens to the motion of the particles in a water wave as the depth increases?

The motion of the particles in a water wave decreases as depth increases because the energy from the wave at the surface losses it's power.

What is random motion of particles?

The average energy of the random motion of particles (in a gas for simplicity) is known as the temperature.

What happens to the average speed of the particles in a gas when that gasses temperature is increased?

The speed increases, this is because particle motion causes heat. Certain gases can ignite if the particles are heated enough.
