1

Density

The mass of something per volume

2

Irregular solid object

Object which is calculated in such a way that the volume cannot be calculated from its dimensions

3

Sublimate

Change from a liquid to a gas without becoming a liquid on the way

4

Internal energy

Total energy stored within a system, both kinetic and potential of all the atoms and molecules

5

Specific heat capacity

Amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one kg of the substance by 1 degree

6

Specific latent heat

Amount of energy required to change the state of one kg of the substance with no change in temperature

7

Specific lantern heat of fusion

From solid to liquid

8

Specific latent heat of vaporisation

From liquid to gas

9

Density =

Mass divided by volume

10

The upthrust has to be

The same or bigger that the weight to float

11

Energy transferred =

Mass x specific heat capacity x temperature change

12

Energy for a change of state =

Mass x specific latent heat
