Which of the following best explains what happens when the kinetic energy of particles in a liquid state decreases? (2 points) • They move so slowly that the particles are no longer held together, resulting in the formation of a gas. • They move fast enough to overcome the forces of attraction holding them together and become a gas. • They move more slowly, resulting in the formation of a solid. • They move so quickly that the particles ionize and become plasma.

Well, when the average kinetic energy of the particles in a liquid decreases, that means that the temperature of the particles in the liquid decreases. Which of those four choices do you think results because of a decrease in temperature?
