Science Test Two (1)

lindawang311's version from 2017-03-10 00:13


-ABSOLUTE ZERO (-273 Celsius or 0 Kelvin) - particles are still moving around - absolute zero has never been attained.
-VOLUME OF MATTER: heat increases the movement of the particles in a substance and the distance they vibrate, so the volume increases
-HOW HEAT IS TRANSFERRED: 1) in a solid (CONDUCTION), 2) in liquids and gases (CONVECTION), 3) in space and other (RADIATION).
-HE (j), #g (grams), change in temperature (C), SHC (specific heat capacity)


-travels in waves (look at diagram and know wavelength, crest, trough)
-can be reflected or absorbed
-travels 300,000 km/s
-PHOTONS: carry the radiation
-higher frequencies = higher energy
-infrared radiation is HEAT
-infrared camera: bright
colors = warm/hot and dark
colors = cool/cold

Sheets to study:

-STATION # 11 (changes of state and characteristics of matter): STUDY THE SHEET -know both tables (not the one in the top right)

The Particle Theory of Matter

Question Answer
All matter is_____of very small particles called_____and_____that are too small to be seen.composed, atoms, molecules
All of the_____of matter are in _____ ___because they have_____. Particles in_____are held tightly in place but do move. Particles in_____move more freely. Particles in____move much more freely yet. The particles in solids, liquids, and gases are held together by forces of_____between the particles.Particles, constant motion, energy,solid,liquids,gases,attraction
There is _____between the particles. The size of the spaces_____with the ___ ____ ____ (e.g., a solid, liquid, or gas)spaces, varies, type of matter
The addition of ___ ___causes particles to move_____, stretching their _____.heat energy, faster, bonds
Particles are attracted to _____particles. sometimes particles are ___attracted to particles of other substances than they are to their_____.Other, more, own


Question Answer
WHAT ARE THE SOURCES OF HEAT ENERGY: MECHANICAL ENERGY1) friction, 2) percussion, 3) compression, 4) distortion
WHAT ARE THE SOURCES OF HEAT ENERGY: CHEMICAL ENERGY1) burning, 2) other chemical reactions (new substances are always formed with chemical sources of heat)
WHAT ARE THE SOURCES OF HEAT ENERGY: ELECTRICAL ENERGY(Sorry, no answers or examples for electrical. Click I'm right if you are using flashcard mode, I'm sorry)
What is the Definition of FictionHeat is produced when surfaces are rubbed together. Example: Rubbing hands together
What is the Definition of DistortionHeat is generated when substances especially when metals are bent (Usually repeatedly). Example: Coat hanger
What is the Definition of CompressionWhen substances are compressed, they often become hotter. Example: Balloon! Heat builds up as it gets bigger and will pop if too big.
What is the Definition of PercussionSubstances heat up when being hit or pounded. Example: Hammer and nails, nail gets warm after being pounded with a hammer.
What is the Definition of BurningHeat energy is released when the bonds between atoms (Particles) are broken using high temperatures. New substances are formed whenever chemical energy occurs. (This is NOT a change of state!) Example: A person walking too Close to the fire.
What is the Definition of Other Chemical reactionsHeat energy is released when certain substance are mixed with other substances. Again, like burning, new substances are being formed. Example: Fire under a solution.
What is the Definition of Electrical EnergyAs electricity moves through material that resists the flow of electrons (part of an atom), the particles on the substance become agitated and move more rapidly, generating heat. Example: Electric stove element, electricity.
What is the Definition of Nuclear EnergyEnergy that is released when an atom is spit apart (fission), or when atoms are forced to join together (fusion). Fusion is what occurs in the sun.


What is HEATthermal energy that is transferred from one substance to another
What is TEMPERATUREthe measure of the average kinetic energy of the molecules in a substance
What is POTENTIAL ENERGYenergy that is stored
What is KINETIC ENERGYenergy that is "moving"
What is CONDUCTORStransfer heat easily / quickly
What is INSULATORtransfer heat poorly
PHOTONScarry the radiation
