Ch 10 science terms

sam reinhard 1st period

Temperature a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object
How are temperature and an average related? you need to average the particles in kinetic energy to get temperature
The temperature of a substance in not determined by how much of the substance you have
A thermometer operates of the principle of thermal expansion
Thermal expansion occurs when there is an increase of volume with an increase of temperature
When the temperature of a substance changes the particles spread out so the entire substance expands
Heat the transfer of energy between objects that are at different temperatures
Thermal Energy the total energy of the particles that make up a substance
Thermal Equilibrium the point where energy is transferred from the higher temperature object to the lower temperature object, there is no net change in either objects thermal energy
Conduction the transfer of thermal energy from one substance to another through direct contact
Conductors substance that conduct thermal energy very well
Insulators substances that do not conduct thermal energy very well
Convection the transfer of thermal energy my movement of a liquid or gas
Radiation the energy transfer through matter or space as electromagnetic waves, such as visible light or infrared waves
