1. The average speed of the particles increased.

This is a trick question. The first answer on average temperature is good, but at the microscopic level you can't detect temperature directly.

5. 1.temperature
2.the average speed of the particles increased
3.Heat flows from hot to cold and is the transfer of thermal energy.
4.The molecules will have more potential energy because of their arrangement.
I just took the test and got 100% with these answers!
