An instrument that measures atmospheric pressure.
The average kinetic energy of the particles (molecules or atoms).
The force of the atmosphere per unit of the surface area over which it is exerted.
An instrument used to measure the temperature of substances.
The transfer of thermal energy through collisions between particles (atoms or molecules) in materials.
The transfer of thermal energy by the movement or flow of heated material from one location to another. This process is often the result of differential heating that causes variations in density.
The transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves.
The scientific study of the atmosphere.
The layer of the atmosphere that is closest to the Earth's surface. This is the layer that most of our weather takes place.
The layer of the atmosphere that is located above the troposphere. The layer that contains the ozone layer.
Energy due to motion
A device that has 5 prongs made of various metals; used to help visualize differences in thermal conductivity.
A process by which one thing is taken in by another. The process results in the temperature.
The amount of mater in an object.
The amount of space that an object takes up.
The amount of mass per unit of volume for a substance.
The envelope of gases that surrounds the Earth or a planet.
