Measure of the average kinetic energy of the individual particles
tempurature scale on which water freezes at 32 degrees and boils at 212 degrees
Metric unit for measuring temperature; On this scale water freezes at zero and boils at 100.
SI unit for temperature; On this scale water freezes at 273 and boils at 373
The coldest temperature possible, 0 deg Kelvin, that can be reached. Particles have no kinetic energy. Degrees same as on Centigrade Scale.
the total kinetic and potential energy of all the particles in a substance.
the change in state from a liquid to a solid
the application of heat to change something from a liquid to a gas
gain heat or get hot.
Molecule to molecule transfer of heat
Transfer of heat by fluid movement or liquids
a current caused by the rising of heated fluid and sinking of cooled fluid
Transfer of energy that by electromagnetic waves
a device designed to transmit electricity, heat, etc.
A material that does not allow heat or electrons to move through it easily. Examples: styrofoam, paper
The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1kg of a substance 1 degree K
