Intergrated Physics and Chemistry Vocabulary

pH measure of hydrogen ions (H+) in a solution on a scale from 0-14 acid (H+)<7 neutral(7) Base (OH-)>7
electrolyte a substance dissolves into ions and produces an electric current
reactivity tendency to gain or lose electrons
solar cells device that absorbs radiant energy from the sun. aka: photovoltaic cell
Newton's laws explain inertia, constant acceleration and momentum
mechanical advantage number of times a machine multiplies the effort force applied to it
oxidation reaction in which atoms in an element lose electrons
momentum property of a moving object based on its mass and velocity
wave properties rhythmic property that transfers energy ; transverse or compressional
heat transfer movement of thermal energy; conduction, convection, & radiation
buoyancy ability of a fluid to exert an upward force
solubility maximum amount of solute dissolved in a solvent at a given temperature
solute substance being dissolved ex: kool-aid, sugar
solvent substance doing the dissolving ex: water
viscosity a fluids resistance to flow ex: syrup or oil had greater viscosity than water
acceleration rate of change in velocity; speed up, slow down, or change direction
density mass per unit of volume; measurment can be g/mL or g/cm^3
efficiency measure of work put in a machine compared to work done by a machine
nuclear reactions splitting apart of an atom (fission) or joining of two atomic nuclei (fusion)
endergonic chemical reactions that require energy
exergonic chemical reaction that release energy; usually light or heat
solution mixture that appears to have the same composition color, density, and taste throughout; made up of two parts; solute and solvent
law of conservation of energy energy is not created or destroyed; it changes forms; ex: electrical energy to heat energy (toaster)
law of conservation of mass mass is not gained or lost; it changes forms; ex: liquid to gas
force push or pull; measured in Newton's * formula f=ma
physical properties transfer of energy when force is applied to an object; measured in joules *formula w=fdcharacteristics you can observe without changing the materials; ex: size, shape
chemical properties any characteristics, such as flammability, that indicates it can undergo a chemical change
power amount of work done in a certain amount of time; measure in watts *formula P=w/t
work transfer of energy when force is applied to an object; measure in joules. *formula w=fd
circuit pathway for electricity: series circuit- one pathway for electricityparallel circuit- two or more pathways for electricity

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
