how would you describe the change in energy and speed of water molecules as the water gets hotter?

(2) Answers

the energy increases as the water begins to heat up, the water molecules would also begin to move fast as it heats up


As the temperature of the water in the beaker increases, both the energy and speed of the molecules increases. Temperature, energy and molecular speed are all related. Temperature is the measure of average kinetic energy of molecules. The kinetic energy of an individual molecule is one half the product of its mass and the square of its velocity: KE = 1/2 mv^2
