Solution: In which form of water are the water molecules farthest apart?

Solution: In which form of water are the water molecules farthest apart?

Problem

In which form of water are the water molecules farthest apart?

In water vapor, a gas, water molecules are very widely spaced. In liquid water, such as in the ocean, water molecules are very close together. In ice, water molecules are further apart than they are in liquid water, with molecules arranged in a lattice structure. A photograph of icebergs floating on the ocean indicates that molecules in ice convert both to vapor and liquid water, molecules in liquid go to vapor and ice, and vapor goes to both ice and liquid.


Solution

Analyze the given image and determine are the water molecules farthest apart

Recall that the simple states of matter can either be solid, liquid or gas
