What can kinetic theory be used to explain?
Kinetic Theory can be used to explain the different states of matter
1 of 9
What have different amounts of energy?
particles of solids, liquids and gases have different amounts of energy
2 of 9
What is the specific heat capacity of an object?
The amount of energy needed to change the temperature of one kilogram of the substance by one degree celsius
3 of 9
What is the relationship between energy, mass, specific heat capacity and temperature change?
Energy = Mass x Specific Heat Capacity x Temperature Change

What is the specific latent heat of vaporisation of a substance?
The amount of energy needed to change the state of one kilogram of a substance from liquid to vapour with no change in temperature
5 of 9
What is the relationship between energy, specific latent heat of vaporisation and mass?
Energy = Mass x Specific Latent Heat of Vaporisation
