Energy
the ability to work or cause change
The law of conversation of energy
energy cannot be created or destroyed.
Kinetic energy
energy in the form on motion
thermal energy
total energy of particles that make up a sample of matter
Heat
energy that flows from something with the higher temperature to a lower temperature
Condensation
the process of changing state from gas to a liquid
Evaporation
the process of changing stat from a liquid to a gas
expansion
an increase in volume caused by a decrease in external pressure
mass
the amount of matter in a substance or a object
melting
the process of changing solid to a liquid
solidification
the process of changing state from a liquid to a solid by removal of heat.
sublimation
the process of changing state from a solid to a gas without going to a liquid stage.
volume
the amount of space taken up by a substance or object.
Solid
particles are close to gather and only viberating
liquid
particles are farther apart and they can move past each other
Gas
particles are very far apart and are moving very fast
Thermal Expansion
the matter expands when the temperature increases
Thermal Contraction
the matter decrease in volume

Conduction
transfer of kinetic energy with direct contact
Convection
transfer of energy by movement of matter
Radiation
a form of heat transfer that does not require matter.
