Asked in Chemistry
As an object gains heat what happens to the particle motion?
particles that gain heat begin to move. the higher the temperature, the more movement of the particles. temperature is a measurement of particle movement. ...
Asked in Chemistry
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. ...

What happens to the movement of particles in an object when they are heated?
They speed up. The Kinetic Energy (ie, motion) of a particle is proportional to the Thermal Energy (ie, heat). ...
Asked in Physics
What is heat energy that is transferred by particles or waves called?
Particles is one thing, waves is something else. Heat transferred by the motion of particles can be conduction or convection. Heat transferred by electromagnetic waves is radiation. ...
How heat energy affects the motion of particles?
When heat is added to particles. The particles start to get heated which forces them to move at a greater speed then before, when you add heat to the particles they speed up and move faster. If you make particles colder then they will move at a slower speed. ...
What happens to the motion of water particules when heat energy is added to the water?
Molecules move faster when heat energy is added to to water. The water temperature may increase or some or the molecules may get enough energy to change phase from solid to liquid or from liquid to vapor. ...
Why are particles always in motion?
Particles are always in motion because they have an amount of heat energy stored within them. As additional heat is added, the substance's particles gain more energy, and will in turn increase distance between themselves, and weaken the bonds between them. In turn, when heat is taken away from a substance (it is cooled down) the particles loose energy, and the distance between them will decrease, causing the bonds between them to strengthen. The whole idea is known as the particle theory....
What happes to the motion of particles if more heat energy is applied?
As heat is applied, particles spread out and move more rapidly. Consequently, if you decrease the temperature the particles become closer and slow down. ...
Asked in Science
What happens when heat is taken away from matter?
If heat is taken away from matter, then the matter will become more solid and thereby move more slowly at an atomic level, until it reaches 0 Kelvin (absolute zero), at which point all motion stops. Remember that heat is energy and energy is the amount of motion in an atom. At absolute zero all motion stops and it is cold. Really, really, REALLY cold. Hope this helps! :) ...
Asked in Energy
Why is the motion of particles important to the transfer of energy by conduction?
The motion of particles is important to the transfer of energy by conduction because it forms heat energy. Example: If you have no gloves on a very cold day you can rub your hands together to form heat. The particles in your hands move around to create conduction. ...
