A substance gains thermal energy as the temperature of the substance increases, because the particles of the substance vibrate more as this happens.

substances can gain thermal energy by heating them or applying electric shocks


How does mass effect thermal energy?

The greater the mass of a substance the more thermal energy. The thermal energy of a substance depends on the temperature and mass of that substance.

When is thermal energy in a substance evident?

if temperature changes that means there is thermal energy in a substance


Does gas lose or gain thermal energy in condensation?

When condensation occurs, it is a gain thermal energy.


Define thermal energy?

Thermal Energy: Substance that has energy from the movement of its particles.


How is the thermal energy of a substance related to its physical state?

The thermal energy of a substance determines its state, since thermal energy, aka internal energy, is the energy the molecules in the substance have. If the energy exceeds the force holding the substance together the substance undergoes a phase change.The physical state of a substance is related to its temperature, the measure of thermal energy. The substance can change states depending on the temperature, e.g. boiling.




Does temperature have a higher amount of thermal energy in a substance?

The higher of the temperature of a substance, the more thermal energy it has.


How does a substance gain heat?

A substance gains heat, or otherwise known as thermal energy, in many different ways. These can be from pressure, friction, the transformation of chemical energy to thermal energy, the transformation of electromagnetic energy to thermal energy, potential energy to the energy of motion (kinetic energy) or a substance can become exothermic during, and after a chemical change if the amount of energy produced from the broken bonds is greater than the amount of energy required for rearranged bonds to be made.


What is the definition of thermal energy?

Thermal energy is the total energy of motion in the particles of a substance.


How can a substance gain thermal energy and stay the same?

If a substance is at the edge of a phase change, they can gain thermal energy and yet stay the same temperature. For example, in iced water, the ice and liquid water are at the same temperature and yet the liquid water has more thermal energy. Substances that have high specific heat do not experience large changes in temperature even with large gains of thermal energy. (The question is ambiguous; let me know if these answers help!)


What will happen to the atoms or molecules of a substance when it melts?

the atoms will begin to giggle around more as they gain thermal energy.


What thermal energy moving from one substance to another?

Heat is thermal energy moving from one substance to another.


What happens to the thermal energy of a substance as its temperature increases?

When a sample of a substance absorbs thermal energy, its temperature rises.


How is the themal energy of a substance?

The thermal energy of a substance is measured by its temperature.


Does melting gain or lose thermal energy?

When a solid substance gains enough thermal energy, it melts.When we consider Solutions, say Ice in Water, we see both - simultaneously the melting ice gains thermal energy from the water while the water loses thermal energy to the ice body.


IS Thermal energy is kinetic energy or potential energy?

Thermal energy in a substance is kinetic energy of the molecules that make up the substance.


What happens to thermal energy during condensation?

thermal energy is released by the substance


Does freezing gain or lose thermal energy?

it loses thermal energy because its getting cold and the energy is no longer thermal


Whatis thermal energy?

Thermal energy is the sum of kinetic and potential energy in the particle in a substance.


How is temperature different from thermal energy?

Thermal Energy is theTOTAL Ek of atoms in a substance.Temperature is the measure of the AVERAGE Ek of the atoms in a substance.Thermal energy: The total amount of kinetic energy contained in all the particles of a substance. The greater the kinetic energy of the particles in the substance, the more thermal energy the substance has. But thermal energy also depends on the number of particles in a substance. The more particles a substance contains, the greater its thermal energy.Temperature vs. Heat :When you think of temperature, you probably think "hot" or "cold." To scientists, temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a substance. The more kinetic energy the particles have, the higher the temperature of the substance. Unlike thermal energy, however, temperature is not affected by the number of particles the substance contains.(Taken from: Sciencesaurus A Student Handbook Pp. 301-302)
