Question

As a solid element melts, the atoms become __________ and they have __________ attraction for one another.

1 Answer

  • As a solid element melts, the atoms becomeĀ more separated and they haveĀ less attraction for one another.
    When a solid element starts melting, it means that it is using up a lot of energy it has stored. And when there is a lot of energy being used up, its particles are vibrating fast, and becoming more and more separated. So obviously, if these atoms are far from each other, they aren't going to attract.
