The Total Energy of Motion in the Molecules of a Substance Is Called?

Answer

The total energy of motion in the molecules of a substance is called thermal energy. Thermal energy is the internal energy of an object due to the kinetic energy of its atoms and/or molecules. The atoms and/or molecules of a hot object has greater kinetic energy than colder objects, even if they are the same size with the same motion.
