absolute zero
the temperature at which the motion of particles theoretically ceases.
The ____ temperature of a substance is directly proportional to the average kinetic energy of the particles of the substance.
the key difference between gases and liquids: there are no ____ between the particles in a gas, but there is between particles in a liquid.
solids and liquids
The two condensed states of matter

the conversion of a liquid to gas or vapor with NO boiling.
During evaporation, only those molecules with a certain minimum kinetic energy can ____ from the surface of the liquid.
_____ the liquid increases the average kinetic energy of its particles.
as evaporation takes place, the liquids ____ decreases. Therefore, evaporation is a cooling process.
vapor pressure
Measure of the force exerted by a gas above a liquid.
evaporation, condensation

dynamic equilibrium
In a system of constant vapor pressure, a ______ ______ exists between the vapor and the liquid. the system is in equilibrium because the rate of evaporation of liquid equals the rate of condensation of vapor.
