  • a)
    Inter-mo lecular forces
  • b)
    Potential energy
  • c)
    Kinet ic energy

kinetic energy
The reason is in liquid , vapour equilibrium the rate at which molecules escape from the liquid surface to the gaseous phase equal to the rate at which molecules in the gas phase strikes the surface and becomes the part of liquid. Hence the result.

According to the kinetic theory of liquid the molecules of liquids are constant moving so the kinetic energy of the molecules of liquid are different
