Question

Which statement accurately describes what happens when water vapor condenses into dew in terms of energy?

The water absorbs energy which causes chemical bonds to form, changing water vapor into dew.

The water releases energy which causes the water molecules to have less kinetic and potential energy, changing their configuration from gas to liquid.

2 Answer

  • The correct explanation for the process of formation of dew from the water vapour is The water releases energy which causes the water molecules to have less kinetic and potential energy, changing their configuration from gas to liquid.

    vapour is a gaseous form, while dew is a liquid state of matter therefore it's clear that vapour has to release energy to come in the liquid state, and in this process vapour, water molecules lose their kinetic and potential energy.

  • the correct answer is B.
