Science Vocab #2

amorphous solid solid made up of particles that are not arranged in a regular pattern.
boiling When vaporization takes place throughout a liquid.
boiling point Each liquid boils only at a certain temperature
Boyle's Law The relationship between the pressure and volume of a gas
Charles' Law Charles found that when the temperature of a gas is increased at constant pressure, its volume increases. When the temperature of a gas is decreased at constant pressure, its volume decreases.
condensation The opposite of vaporization
crystalline solid solid that is made up of crystals in which particles are arranged in a regular, repeating pattern
evaporation When vaporization takes place only on a liquid’s surface
fluid Any substance that can flow
freezing the change of state from liquid to solid—the reverse of melting
gas A state of matter with no definite shape or volume.
liquid A state of matter that has no definite shape but has a definite volume.
melting The change in state from a solid to a liquid
melting point In most pure substances, melting occurs at a specific temperature
pressure the force of its outward push divided by the area of the walls of the container
solid A state of matter that has a definite shape and a definite volume
sublimation when the surface particles of a solid gain enough energy to become a gas
surface tension The result of an inward pull among the molecules of a liquid that brings the molecules of a liquid that brings the molecules on the surface closer together; causes the surface to act as if it has thin skin.
vaporization The change from a liquid to a gas
