Solution: Indicate whether each statement is true or false."Translational motion" of molecules refers to their change in spatial location as a function of time.

Solution: Indicate whether each statement is true or false."Translational motion" of molecules refers to their change in spatial location as a function of time.

Problem

Indicate whether each statement is true or false.

"Translational motion" of molecules refers to their change in spatial location as a function of time.

Solution

We are asked to indicate whether the statement is true or false: Translational motion of molecules refers to their change in spatial location as a function of time.


All atoms, molecules, and particles are in constant motion.

Molecular motion is defined as the movement of constituent particles or molecules in a certain direction.

The motion is dependent on the kinetic energy of the molecules.
