What best describes the motion of the particles in a piece of steel?
Kinetic energy best describes the motion of the particles in a piece of steel. ...
Asked in Physics
Why does sound waves travel faster in steel then in air or water?
The particles (molecules) in steel are closely packed - steel has a high density. In solids, we think of the bonds holding the particles together like little springs. The stiffer these are, the more efficiently the wave can travel, so speed of sound tends to increase the denser the medium. ...
Asked in Chemistry, Chess
Are there only many particles moving in a piece of steel?
Yes; all objects have moving particles, known as electrons.
Asked in Speed of Sound
Why the speed of sound is greater in steel than in fluid?
That is because sound waves travel through particles, and solid particles are closer than liquid/gas particles, thus, logically sound wave will travel faster in steel than in a fluid. :) ...
Asked in Science
Does particles move faster when an object heats up?
Particles don't "move" when object heat up. When objects are being heated, they get more energy. Lets us an example, a piece of steel. When the steel is heated, thermal (heat) energy is being transfered into the steel. The particles in the steel get more energy, then begin to vibrate. The particles will bounce into each other whilst doing this, giving each other MORE energy. So to answer your question, particles don't get FASTER when they heat up... They VIBRATE when the...

What are the Disadvantages of iron and steel industries?
these industries give out harmful particles of carbon and other particles these sometimes causes for acid rain etc ...
What is in a magnet that makes it stick to iron or steel?
Positively and negatively charged particles in a magnet make it stick to other metals, such as iron or steel. ...
Asked in Chemistry
Does water with high iron content cause stainless steel fittings to rust?
Good quality stainless steel should never rust. I have noticed that the high iron content in our water causes red particles of iron oxide to remain on stainless steel vessels - and it looks exactly like rust but its just the iron in the water drying out on the stainless steel. ...
Asked in Magnetism
What is the whole verb in this sentence magnets attract iron and steel particles?
"Attract" is the verb.
Asked in Physics, Chemistry, Particle Physics
Which particles will attract and which particles will repel?
Unlike charged particles will attract; like charged particles will repel.
Asked in Speed of Sound
Why is sound faster in steel than gold?
because gold is made up of dense particles, and the denser the particles are, the more they resist in movement so it take more energy to move them which result in a slower transfer of sound energy. In comparison, steel is less dense than gold which makes sound transfer faster in steel than in gold ...
