when a gas turns into liquid, it lose some amount of kinetic energy.


the gas molecules have some amount of kinetic energy by virtue of which they can move randomly.but when the temperature of the gas is decreased or pressure on the gas is increased, the gas becomes liquid at a certain temperature or pressure.here when we decrease temperature or increase pressure the randomness of the gas molecules are decreased & consequently the kinetic energy of the gas decrease.
