states that all of the particles that make up matter are constantly in motion
a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample of matter
units that temperature is measured in
a device that measures temperature by regular change in the material inside it
flow of energy due to temperature differences
the total random kinetic energy of particles in an object
the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by one degree C
standard unit of energy
the heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of a substance one degree centigrade
the transfer of heat within a material or between materials that are touching
a material that easily allows the flow of electricity
a material that does not transfer energy easily
