TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Surface Tension 
Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Force created by water molecules attracting one another
  • Cold water has higher ST because hot water has more dynamic molecules that pull on each other less

TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Efficiency 
Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
A machine can never be 100% efficient, some energy is given out as heat
  • Efficiency = W(output)/W(input)

TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Kinetic Energy
Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
KE is equal to the work done to bring an object to a certain speed
  • KE = 1/2 MV^2

TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Measure of the AVERAGE KE in a substance

TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Heat (Joule)
Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Energy transfer from a warmer to a colder object 
  • Transfer does not only depend on heat gradient but also on volume
> Greater Volume = More inclined for heat transfer 
> Greater Volume = More molecules = Less heat gained

TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Detection of Expansion or Contraction
  • Hotter Objects = Higher KE in atoms = Expand

TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Unique Property of Water
Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Between 0’ - 4’ C:
  • 0 - 3’C - water is filled with ice crystals 
  • 4’C - melts those crystals and decreases volume 
  • > 4’C - increases volume (normal expansion)

TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Conductivity
Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • When a substance has loose outer electrons
  • Silver is the best conductor > Copper > Aluminum > Iron

TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Condensation 
Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Warm air causes H20 molecules to move fast and collide while cold air causes them to stick
  • Thus, warm air can hold water vapor more (humid) while cold air condenses and forms droplets of water
Lösung ausblenden
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
Boiling
Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Causes water at the bottom to evaporate, forming bubbles
  • It is a cooling process that maintain water at 100’C  instead of a continuous increase
  • By reduction of pressure, boiling can also take place (in a vacuum) in order to reduce temperature even until freezing
