Heat Energy/Transfer

6th Grade NC Science

Conduction a process where heat or electricity directly passes through another substance
Convection the movement caused by hotter, less dense material rising and cooler, more dense material sinking
Radiation heat, light, or electrical energy transmitted as waves
Equilibrium a state in which opposing forces or influences are balanced
Combustion rapid chemical combination of a substance with oxygen, involving the production of heat and light
Current a flow of a substance, like heat or electricity or energy
Wave a periodic disturbance of a substance without movement, such as in the passage of energy, motion, heat, or sound
Solid a stable object with a specific order to its condensed particles within a fixed volume
Liquid a fluid with a definite volume and indefinite shape
Gas a fluid with no definite volume or shape, but particles spread out unlike liquid
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
Insulator a material that does not easily allow sound or heat to pass through
Conductor a material that allows the flow of electricity, sound, or heat to pass through
