Physical Science

Things to help study for science final exam.

matter that does not have a definite volume or shape;the particles move very quickly. Gas
The ability of a substance to dissolve when mixed with another substance. Solubility
determines whether one substance will sink or float in another. Less dense = float More dense = sink Relative Density
an object will float in water if its tiny particles are loosely packed & far apart. Buoyant
the solid state of water Ice
matter with definite volume & no definite shape Liquid
the change in the state of water from a water vapor to a liquid Condensation
the amount of space that matter takes up Volume
Two factors that affect how quickly water evaporates. Heat & Temperture
a change in the state from a liquid to a solid Water changes at : 0 degrees Celsius Freezing Point
changes in which the form or shape of a substance changes but the substance keeps it's identity Physical Change
a change in the state from a solid to a liquid Water boils at : 100 Degrees Celsius Boiling point
The amount of matter in something Mass
anything that has mass and takes up space; it has properties and can change form Matter
matter with a definite volume and shape; the particles are close to one another Solid
A measure of the energy of motion of the particles in a substance Tempeture
the ability of an object to attract to iron or steel magnetic
property used to describe how something feel texture
property used to describe how something shines in the light luster
gas state of water water vapor
when a solid changes to a liquid melting
when a liquid changes to a solid freezing
an object will sink in water if it's tiny particles are close are close together density
describe the object as a solid, liquid, or gas state
a device that reflects light mirror
a hand held tool that magnifies object hand lens
a device used to measure liquid measure liquids accurately graduated cylinder
a tool that uses a collection of lenses to magnify small objects. microscope
a device used to measure liquids accuratley computer
an instrument used to measure distance or length metric ruler
tool used to do mathematical equations quickly calculated
an instrument used to measure an objects mass balance
a device used to measure liquids accurately. beaker
an instrument used to measure air and liquid Cecius Thromometer
an instrument used to heat liquids in scientific experements hot plate
a tool used to take pictures camera
a tool that shows the color spectrum prism
a tool used to collect or capture things collecting net
eye wear that protect the eyes safety goggles
a device used to measure time timing device
an instrument used to measure an objects mass triple beam balance
can not be created or destroyed energy
the energy in an object due to the position of an object mechanical
the energy of moving particals that produce heat thermal
is the form of energy that can be seen light
the energy that can be heard caused by vibrations sound
objects that allow almost all light to pass through transparent
objects that allow some light to pass through translucent
objects that allow no light to pass through opaque
