Triple point of a substance is the temperature and pressure at which that substance can simultaneously exist as a solid, liquid and what other state of matter? Gas (or gaseous or gases, accept vapor)
Term that describes hydrocarbons that contains a carbon-carbon triple bond Alkynes (pronounced AL-kynez)
Chemical compounds that consist of carbon (C) and hydrogen (H) atoms, so they are also called hydrocarbons. Consists of only single bonds. Examples are methane, ethane, propane Alkanes

Greenhouse gases are called CFC. What does CFC stand for? Chloroflurocarbons
This element is necessary for organic chemistry Carbon
At constant temperature, the volume of a confined gas is inversely proportional to the pressure to which it is subjected. PV = k Boyle's Law
At constant pressure, the volume of a confined gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature. V = kT Charles' Law
Equal volumes of gases under identical temperature and pressure conditions will contain equal numbers of particles (atoms, ion, molecules, electrons, etc.). Avogadro's Law
Energy can be neither created nor destroyed; the energy of the universe is constant. Conservation of Energy. First Law of Thermodynamics.
Matter can be neither created nor destroyed, though it can be rearranged. Mass remains constant in an ordinary chemical change. Conservation of Matter or Mass
The pressure of a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases. Dalton's Law
The ratio between the combining volumes of gases and the product (if gaseous) can be expressed in small whole numbers. Gay-Lussac's Law
The state of an ideal gas is determined by its pressure, volume, and temperature according to the equation: PV = nRT Ideal Gas Law
Entropy increases over time. Another way of stating this law is to say that heat cannot flow, on its own, from an area of cold to an area of hot. Second Law of Thermodynamics

A material formed from elements chemically combined in definite proportions by mass. Compound
An atom or molecule that has acquired a charge by either gaining or losing electrons. Ion
Atoms or ions of an element with different numbers of neutrons in their atomic nucleus. Isotope
When two pure substances react to form a compound, they do so in a definite proportion by mass. For example, when water is formed from the reaction between hydrogen and oxygen, the 'definite proportion' is 1 g of H for every 8 g of O. Law of Definite Proportions
Spontaneous emission of particles or high-energy electromagnetic radiation from the nuclei of unstable atoms. Radioactivity
The total number of protons and neutrons in an atom or ion. Mass Number
Type of chemical reaction where two compounds react, and the positive ions (cation) and the negative ions (anion) of the two reactants switch places, forming two new compounds or products. Double Replacement Reaction (aka Double Displacement)
A type of reaction in which multiple reactants combine to form a single product. They release energy in the form of heat and light, so they are exothermic Synthesis Reaction
A type of chemical reaction in which a single compound breaks down into two or more elements or new compounds. These reactions often involve an energy source such as heat, light, or electricity that breaks apart the bonds of compounds. Decomposition Reaction
a type of oxidation-reduction chemical reaction when an element or ion moves out of one compound and into another - that is, one element is replaced by another in a compound. Single Replacement Reaction (aka Single Displacement)
the process of transferring heat by removing material by melting, vaporization or other erosive process. Ablation
A chemical species that donates protons or hydrogen ions and/or accepts electrons. Acid
the number of particles found in one mole of a substance. It is the number of atoms in exactly 12 grams of carbon-12. This experimentally determined value is approximately 6.0221 x 1023 particles per mol Avogadro's Number
