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

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
