What occurs when gas particles lose enough thermal energy to become a liquid?
Condensation occurs when gas particles lose enough thermal energy to become a liquid. For example, clouds typically form when water vapor in the atmosphere condenses into liquid droplets.
Condensation occurs when particles in a gas loose enough thermal energy to form a liquid
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.
The thermal energy from heat causes the particles of the liquid to vibrate more (increasing their kinetic energy), then the vibrating particles get enough kinetic energy and are vibrating enough to allow then to break any sort of bonds (most likely ionic) that they have with surrounding particles and, as they become less dense, the liquid evaporate and becomes a gas.
A person places a metal spoon that is at room temperature into a bowl of hot soup how will the thermal energies of the spoon and the soup be affected?
the spoon will increase in thermal energy, and the soup will decrease in thermal energy. Reason: Thermal energy is the total of all the kinetic and potential energy of the atoms in an object. When the thermal energy of a substance increases, its particles move faster. If the thermal energy of a solid increases enough, it melts into a liquid. The liquid state of a substance always has a higher thermal energy than its solid…
When a solid gains thermal energy, its atoms and/or molecules begin to move (vibrate) faster and faster as the temperature continues to increase. Eventually, the particles that make up the solid will gain enough thermal energy in order to separate into a liquid through melting or into a gas through sublimation.
[bear with me because my answer might be a bit confusing.] a substance melts because its particles have enough energy to change to a different state. (in this case liquid state) the higher the temperature, the more energy the particles have. the more energy the particles have, the faster they can move. When they have enough energy, they can change into the next state. if u still don't understand, think of it like this: 1)…
