Chemistry 10.2 terms

temperature the average kinetic energy of the particles in a material
absolute zero the temperature at which a substance would have zero kinetic energy
kelvin scale a temperature scale using degrees celsius, where zero equals ABSOLUTE zero
kelvin (K) the divisions on the kelvin scale (not degrees kelvin, just kelvin)
diffusion the process by which particles of matter fill a space because of random motion
evaporation the process by which particles of a liquid form a gas by escaping from the surface
sublimation the process by which particles of a solid escape from its surface and form a gas
condensation the reverse of evaporation; gas particles come together and form a liquid
vapor pressure the pressure of a substance in equilibrium with its liquid
boiling point when vapor pressure equals pressure exerted on the surface of a liquid
Joule the SI unit of energy required to lift a 1kg mass 1m against the force of gravity
heat of vaporization the energy absorbed when 1kg of a liquid vaporizes at its boiling point
melting point the temperature of a solid when its crystal lattice begins to disintegrate
freezing point the temperature of a liquid when it begins to form a crystal lattice and becomes a solid
heat of fusion the energy released as 1kg of a substance solidifies at its freezing point
