. Give reasons for the following observation The smell of hot sizzling food several meters away
but to get the smell from cold food you have to go close.
- Matter particles have kinetic energy and are always moving.
- Particles with low kinetic energy move slowly at lower temperatures.
- Because of the low temperatures, the kinetic energy of particles in cold food is minimal.
Particles with high kinetic energy move quicker at increasing temperatures, hence the particles of hot vapors from heated meals move faster.
