Question

Arrange the following in the decreasing order of kinetic energy of molecules.
  1. Steam at 101C
  2. Water at 80C
  3. Water at 50C
  4. Ice at 10C


Solution

The correct option is

The temperature of a substance is a measure of the average kinetic energy of its molecules. Atoms vibrate faster at higher temperature and faster the vibration of atoms, more is its kinetic energy. Thus, the kinetic energy of molecules are as follows -
Steam at 101C > Water at 80C >Water at 50C > Ice at 10C.
