Ch 12 vocab


Fluid A substance that has no fixed shape and yields easily to external pressure; a gas or (esp.) a liquid.
Archimedes Principle a law of physics stating that the apparent upward force (buoyancy) of a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the displaced fluid.
Buoyant The tendency or capacity to remain afloat in a liquid or rise in air or gas. The upward force that a fluid exerts on an object less dense than itself.
Elasticity the tendency of a body to return to its original shape after it has been stretched or compressed
Specific Heat The heat required to raise the temperature of the unit mass of a given substance by a given amount
Amorphous Without a clearly defined shape or form.
Crystalline Having the structure and form of a crystal; composed of crystals.
Strength Physical power and energy:
Bernoulli's Principle The principle in hydrodynamics that an increase in the velocity of a stream of fluid results in a decrease in pressure.
Density The degree of compactness of a substance: "bone density".
Malleability the property of being physically malleable; the property of something that can be worked or hammered or shaped without breaking.
Brittleness firm but easily broken.
