All molecules are in constant modes of vibration due to kinetic energy imparted on them by thermal energy (heat). In a gas, these molecules are vibrating enough that the molecules no longer have bonds between them, which allows them to expand and fill whatever shape and volume vessel it’s in. So now you take that volume of vibrating molecules, put it into a piston, and crunch it down under enormous pressure. You can force it, under enough pressure, into a liquid, basically forcing the gas molecules to bond. This is one reason why you need more heat to boil water at sea level than you do in Flagstaff, AZ, where I always had to use high-altitude directions when I cooked Rice-a-Roni in between college classes. So now you have your liquid bonds. Problem — your liquid will be very hot, because you’ve taken all of that kinetic energy and forced it into a much smaller volume, the liquid which took that “excess” vibrational energy and turned it into thermal energy that, at the moment, has now
