U3L2 Energy Transfer

Plus words from Make a Cloud Lab

Temperature This is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles. The faster the particles, the more kinetic energy, the higher this measurement.
Thermal Energy This is the total kinetic energy of the particles. It is the energy that comes from the temperature of the heated substance.
Thermal Expansion This is the increase in volume that results from an increase in temperature.
Heat This is the energy that is transferred between objects that are at different temperatures.
Radiation This is the transfer of energy as electromagnetic waves.
Convection This is the transfer of energy due to the movement of matter.
Conduction This is the transfer of energy from one object to another object through direct contact.
Density This is the mass per unit volume of a substance.
Specific Heat This is the energy needed to heat a substance by a particular amount. It is the rate at which a material becomes warmer or cooler.
Electromagnetic radiation This is energy that travels in waves. It is energy from the sun.
Dew Point This is the temperature when the air is saturated with water vapor.
Cloud condensation nuclei In the atmosphere, these are tiny (non-gases) solid particles that provide a surface for water to transition from a vapor to a liquid.
Kinetic Energy This is the energy of a object due to motion.
Mass This is the amount of matter ina substance.
Hydrosphere This includes all the waters on the earth's surface, such as oceans, lakes, and seas, and the water over the earth's surface, such as clouds
Geosphere This is the mostly solid, rocky part of the Earth. It extends from the center of the core to the surface of the crust.
