Temperature
How hot or cold something is.
1 of 17
Thermometer
A device used to measure temperature.
2 of 17
Expansion
This is caused by a gain in heat energy, which causes the particles to take up more space.
3 of 17
Conductor
Heat energy can easily pass through this material.
4 of 17
Insulator
Heat energy cannot easily pass through this material.
5 of 17
Thermal Energy
Is transferred from a hot object to a cold object.
6 of 17
Melting point
When a solid becomes a liquid.
7 of 17
Freezing
When a liquid becomes a solid.
8 of 17
Convection
The movement of air and other gases due to heat.
9 of 17
Convectional Currents
When hot particles rise, and then fall as they cool down.
10 of 17
Fluids
Liquids and gases.
11 of 17
Vacuum
There are no particles present.
12 of 17
Radiation
Heat energy that moves without a medium. It does not require particles.
13 of 17
Conduction and Convection
Both require particles that move, in order to transfer heat energy.
14 of 17
Medium
Needed to transfer energy by conduction and convection.
15 of 17
Boiling Point
When a liquid becomes a gas.
16 of 17
Condensing
When a gas becomes a liquid.
