By heating, you are adding energy. The particles will vibrate(move) faster.

What happens to heat energy when a substance changes from liquid to solid?

the particles in the substance slow down, and the heat energy is cooled.

What do you add to kinetic energy to increase heat?

This doesn't really make sense. If you apply heat to a substance you increase the kinetic energy of its particles, which we perceive as an increase in temperature.

How is heat energy created?

heat energy is created by the random motion of the particles present in the molecules of the substance which increases the kinetic energy as a result of increase of velocity of intermolecular particles resulting in increase of temperature and producyion of heat.

What happens to the volume when heat is added?

When a substance is heated it's volume will increase.

Heat causes particles in a liquid to move?

Heat is the average kinetic energy of something. When you increase the heat, you make the particles in the substance move faster. It would be more correct to say that particles moving in a liquid (or any substance rather) cause heat. So increasing heat causes particles in a liquid to move faster. Hope that helps.

What happens as heat energy is transferred to a substance?

the particles of the substance move faster, farther apart and the forces of attraction weaken

What happens when a substance boils?

its particles expand rush around really fast because of the heat

What happens to the distance between particles of a substance as it changes from a liquid to a gas?

The distance increases, as the particles become more energetic and the substance loses its definite volume, as the particles bounce around, due to heat/increased energy.

As heat energy is added to a liquid do the particles increase or decrease in movement?

As heat energy is supplied to a liquid, its temperature rises. The rise of temperature causes a rise in the kinetic energy of the particles; which happens when the speed of the particles increases.

What is the separation of particles as heat is added which causes an increase in the size of the substance?

Whenever heat is added to the system, we increase the average kinetic energy of molecules. Increasing the K.E. of molecules cause the molecules to move further apart and collide back even more violently. This can cause size of the substance to increase.

What happen to the particles when boiling?

The particles move violently during boiling. This happens due heat of the medium.

What happens to particles when heat is added?

When heat is applied to an object the particles move faster.

What happens when you remove heat from particles?

When we remove heat from particles they will got cold an will be contracted

How does the volume of matter change with an increase in temperature?

In most cases, the volume will increase with temperature... density decreases. The volume of liquids and gasses increase as they are heated. This is because the heat energy is tranferred to the particles in the substance, making them increase their speed. The particles then need more space to move, so there becomes more space around the gas or liquid particles causing the substance expand and take up more space.

What happens when you melt a liquid?

It turns into a liquid because the particles heat up and shift about causing them to be shifted about as a different substance (liquid)

When heat is removed from a substance will the particles start moving faster?

No, heat makes the particles move faster. If you remove the heat the particles will start moving slower as it cools down.

What happens to substance during changes between liquid and gas?

The particles of the substance gain kinetic energy as they absorb heat energy. Eventually there is enough kinetic energy for the particles to escape the liquid phase, forming the gas phase.

What happens to the molecules of a substance when the substance is heated?

When you heat molecule you give them energy in form of motion.Lets take CO2 molecule. When you heat it its velocity increases. Particles start flying faster. Second thing that happens is that bonds O-C-O starts vibrate more rapidly and stronger (at some point thous vibrations can torn apart molecule)So two things happen to molecule when you heat them:You increase theyr velocityYou increase vibration of bondsthe molecules start moving faster.

What happens to the particles in matter when heat is added?

When heat is provided to a substance, the particles inside the substances gains the energy and starts vibrating to and fro hitting another particle and it continues.it can even be very in portent to know that heat is really the main thing you have to know.

How does the heat affect the speed of the particles?

When heat is added to a substance, the rate at which the particles are traveling also increases, for heat and velocity share a direct relationship.

When heat is being supplied to a solid then what does the heat energy do to the particles of solid?

Adding heat energy will usually increase the temperature. At the level of the individual particles, the particles will vibrate faster.

When does the addition of heat to a substance not result in a temperature increase?

-- When the heat causes the substance to melt or vaporize. -- When heat is being leaked out of the substance at the same rate somewhere else.

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 happens to atoms of A substance when heat is added?

When heat is added to a substance, the molecules and atoms vibrate faster.
