kinetic energy the energy an object has due to its motion
pressure the result of a force distributed over an area
absolute zero a temperature of 0 kelvins
Charles's law the direct proportion of the volume of a gas to its temperature (in kelvins) if the pressure and the number of particles of the gas are constant
Boyle's law the inverse variation of the volume of a gas with its pressure if the temperature and the number of the particles are constant
phase change a reversible physical change that occurs when a substance changes from one state of matter to another
endothermic a description of a change in which a system absorbs energy from its surroundings
heat of fusion the energy a substance must absorb in order to change from a solid to a liquid
exothermic a description of a change in which a system releases energy to its surroundings
vaporization phase change in which a substance changes from a liquid to a gas
heat of vaporization the energy a substance must absorb in order to change from a liquid to a gas
