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.
