Which of the following has the highest thermal energy?

  1. (a) 1.0 g of ice at 0 ℃
  2. (b) 1.0 g of liquid water at 25 °C
  3. (c) 1.0 g of liquid water at 100 °C
  4. (d) 1.0 g of water vapor at 100 °C

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Among the given following, the highest thermal energy possesses to be identified.

Concept introduction:

Thermal energy: Thermal energy refers to the energy contained within a system and is responsible for its temperature. It is due to the motion of atoms, molecules, or ions at the submicroscopic (particulate) level (thermal energy). All matter ha thermal energy.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct option:

d) At 100C the motion of water vapor will be extremely higher; out of three states of matter solid, liquid, and gas, the kinetic energy will be more for gas than other two. At high temperature the kinetic motion of gas will be more and also thermal energy. More the kinetic energy more the thermal energy;

Hence the correct option is option (d).

Reason for incorrect options:

  • Option a) – 1.0g of ice at 0C

    At 0C , the kinetic motion of water molecules are very low in the solid state (ice), thus no heat energy conserved at the submicroscopic level. Therefore, the thermal energy is low.

  • Option b) – 1
