You mean thermal energy right the thermal energy is causing to water to heat up.
This water is way to hot the temperature is way to high.
You are wrong your hand is giving off thermal energy making the cup in your hand heat up turning your solid ice cubes back into liquid water. The particles are moving faster when solid water turns to liquid water too.
No your wrong the temperature is hot in this area that is whats making the waters molecules heat up
The water is moving around constantly and the kinetic energy is giving it ts form so now were arguing about the same thing can we just call it a day.
Your talking about my hand giving off the thermal energy and causing the particles to heat up and change and thermal energy would turn my water into a gas
