p1.2-Changes of State Flashcards
p1.2.1-What is density?
Density is how much mass there is in a certain volume. It is a property of the material, not the object.
p1.2.1-How do you calculate density?
p1.2.1-What are the properties of the states of matter?
Solid-Very compact and no movement
Liquid-Next to each other, but intermolecular forces are weaker and they can flow.
Gas-Far apart with random motions and a lot of movement.
p1.2.1-Why do substances in different states have different densities?
They have a different distance to particles in each state and a different mass.
p1.2.2-What is temperature?
Temperature is the measure of the average kinetic energy of particles in a substance and a higher temperature means a higher heat energy. It is measured in degree Celsius or Kelvin.
p1.2.2-What is the difference between Energy and Temperature?
Energy is measured in Joules(J)and depends on the arrangement of particles and how fast they are moving or vibrating.
Temperature is the average kinetic energy of the particles and measured in degrees Celsius.
p1.2.2-What is internal energy?
The sum of kinetic and potential energy of a substance. Heat energy is in every substance, even if there is low amounts of it.
p1.2.2-What can happen after an object is heated?
Heating can change the energy stored within a system to increase the temperature, produce a change of state and make chemical reactions happen.
p1.2.2-What is a Physical Change?
A physical change is a change of state and dissolving a substance in another. You do not make new substances and physical changes are easy to reverse as particles are simply rearranged.
p1.2.2-What is a Chemical Change?
A chemical change involves joining atoms together in different ways. New substances are produced and there are different particles before and after making it difficult to reverse.
p1.2.2-What is the difference between a Physical and Chemical change?
Physical Change-No new substance, particles rearranged, easy to reverse
Chemical Change-New substance, particles completely different, difficult to reverse
p1.2.2-What happens if you place a hot object in contact with a cold object?
A hotter object has particles with higher internal energy.
Particles move fast and collide with each other.
They collide with the particles of the cold object and transfer kinetic energy.
The particles of the cold object will start moving faster producing a rise in temperature.
p1.2.3-What is Specific Heat Capacity?
Specific Heat Capacity is the heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1Kg of a substance by 1 Kelvin.
p1.2.3-What is Internal Energy related to?
Heating increases Internal energy which is the energy related to motion, vibration, rotation and arrangement of particles.
p1.2.3-How do you calculate change with Specific Heat Capacity?
Change in Thermal Energy( ￼J ) = mass(kg) x specific heat capacity(J/kg) x change in temperature(C)
