A measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a substance
The energy of a substance to to both the random motions of its particles and to the potential energy that results from the distances and alignments between the particles.
The state in which two bodies in physical contact with each other have identical temperatures.
The energy transferred between objects because of a difference in their temperatures.
Specific Heat Capacity
The quantity of heat required to raise a unit mass of homogeneous material 1K or 1°C in a specified way given constant pressure volume.
An experimental procedure used to measure the energy transferred from one substance to another.
The physical change of a substance, from one state to another at a constant temperature and pressure.
The energy per unit mass that is transferred during a phase change of a substance.
A set of particles or interacting components considered to be a distinct physical entity for the purpose of study.
The combination of conditions and influences outside a system that affect the behavior of the system.
A thermodynamic process that takes place at constant volume so that no work is done on or by the system
A thermodynamic process that takes place at constant temperature.
A thermodynamic process during which no energy is transferred to or from the system as heat.
A thermodynamic process in which a system returns to the same conditions under which it started.
A measure of the randomness or disorder of a system.
