condensing Changing from a gas into a liquid.
conduction When heat is transferred through a substance by passing from one particle to the next.
contraction When a substance takes up less space, because its particles have moved closer together. This happens when a substance is cooled.
convection When heat is transferred by the movement of a heated (less dense) liquid or gas up through a more dense liquid or gas. This causes currents which transfer heat energy through the substance.
density How tightly packed together the particles are in a substance.
diffusion When particles in a liquid or gas move from where they have a high concentration to where they have a low concentration
evaporating Changing from a liquid into a gas.
expansion When a substance takes up more space, because its particles have moved further apart. This happens when a substance is heated.
gas A type of matter in which the particles are far apart. It will fill (or escape) its container.
