Plasma a separation in charges (ionization), a gas that has lost its electrons
Freezing the process of removing heat from a liquid the point at which all particles do not move
Melting the process of adding heat to a solid to change its state to a liquid
Vaporization the process of adding heat to a liquid to change its state to a gas
Condensation the process of removing heat from a gas to change its state to a liquid
Sublimation the process of a solid changing directly into a gas without being a liquid
Deposition the process of a gas changing directly into a solid without being a liquid
Kinetic Energy an energy that a body has by being in motion
Heat Transfer the flow of heat due to an imbalance of temperatures
Heat Energy the result of movement (kinetic energy) of particles
Molecule the smallest fundamental unit of a chemical compound that can take part in a chemical reaction
Absorption the ability to take in another substance
