This question included four response options: A) is the lowest low temperature B) increases at low temperature C) is the same in all the temperature D) is the lowest in the high temperature The right instruction is the option (a) is the lowest at low temperature. The Molecular Kinetic Theory describes the behavior of gases in terms of the movement of the particles. It makes several assumptions about size, motion, and the kinetic energy of the particles (molecules). Given that the kinetic energy, KE, is KE = m * v^2 / 2 and that the velocity of the particles is greater at higher temperatures and lower at lower temperatures, the conclusion of the kinetic energy of a molecule is the lowest at low temperature, I.and the option to).
