HELP!!!! (: Which of the following best explains what happens when the kinetic energy of particles in a gas state decreases? They vibrate so quickly that the particles ionize and become plasma. They vibrate so slowly that the particles are no longer held together, resulting in a plasma. They move fast enough to overcome the forces of attraction holding them together and become a liquid. They move more slowly, causing the forces of attraction holding them together to increase, resulting in a liquid.

When gas particles decrease in kinetic energy, they decrease in speed, which means they aren't able to move so far away from each other and so freely. What do you think this means for the new state of the particles?
