Total Energy of Liquid in Kinetic Energy - QS Study
top logo

A liquid in motion possesses pressure energy, kinetic energy and potential energy.

Kinetic energy: It is the energy possessed by a liquid by virtue of its motion.

If m is the mass of the liquid moving with a velocity v, the kinetic energy of the liquid = ½  mv2.


Kinetic energy per unit mass: [½  mv2]/m = v2/2

Covalent bonds determine:

  • molecular shape
  • bond energies
  • chemical properties.
