Temperature and Heat
Terms in this set (22)
A measure of how hot (or cold) something is; specifically, a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object.
Energy in transit due to a temperature difference between a hot object and a cooler object.
Metric temperature scale on which water freezes at 0 degrees and boils at 100 degrees
Scientific unit of temperature which indicates the number of units above absolute zero.
The coldest temperature, 0 Kelvin, that can be reached. It is the hypothetical temperature at which all molecular motion stops.
The state of two or more objects or substances in thermal contact when they have reached a common temperature.
Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics
A law that if two systems are separately found to be in thermal equilibrium with a third system, the first two systems are in thermal equilibrium with each other; that is, all three systems are at the same temperature. Also known as thermodynamic equilibrium.
Kinetic Particle Model
All matter is made up of small particles that are in constant motion.
One of three forms- solid, liquid, or gas- which every substance is capable of attaining.
A state of matter that has a definite shape and volume
A state of matter that has no definite shape but has a definite volume.
A state of matter with no definite shape or volume.
sum of the kinetic and potential energies of all particles in the system.
First Law of Thermodynamics
Heat is a form of energy which can be neither created nor destroyed but can be changed in form.
The amount of energy transferred from one type to another.
The capacity of a physical system to do work
The unit for Energy and Work
The energy due to an objects motion.
Gravitational Potential Energy
The stored energy of a mass in a gravitational field.
Elastic Potential Energy
The energy stored in compressed or stretched spring.
How quickly energy is transferred from one type into another.
The unit for Power.
