I was reading about the vaporisation of liquid when I came across the following statement.
The average energy of the particles in a liquid is governed by the temperature. The higher the temperature, the higher the average energy. But within that average, some particles have energies higher than the average, and others have energies lower than the average.Some of the more energetic particles on the surface of the liquid can be moving fast enough to escape from the attractive forces holding the liquid together. They evaporate.
Now if some particles have energies lower than the average, then why don't they convert into solids in the same way the particles with higher energies convert to gases.
If we cover a vessel filled with water with a plate, after some time, we observe droplets of water accumulated at the plate because of vaporisation of water. Why don't we observe any changes that show liquid particles converting to solid?
