1. Q=mL
Equation to use for a phase change from solid<->liquid
2. Q=mV
Equation to use for a phase change from liquid<->gas
3. Equation to use when remaining a phase and changing temperature
4. Specific Heat
Amount of heat needed to raise the temperature
5. Latent heat
Heat released or absorbed by an object
6. Thermal energy
Amount of energy an object has relitive to it's heat
7. Thermal equilibrium
When two objects reach the same temperature after being put together
8. Kelvin -> Celcius
• Change of 273.
• Celsius -> Kelvin= -273
• Kelvin -> Celsius= +273
9. Isothermic
~Equalling of temperature

~Thermic- Temperature
10. Isobaric
~Equalling of pressure

~Baric- Barametor
11. Isochoric
~Equalling of volume

~Also called isovolumetric

~Choric- Chorus has volume
~No change in anything

~ "a"- no
13. Conductor
~When an item transfers heat well

~"When a woman is struck by lighting on a train, how long until it reaches the driver? Depends on if he's a good conductor."
14. Conduction
~Heat transfer through direct contact

~Stove top
15. Convection
~Heat transfer through fluid motion

~Convection oven
~Heat transfer through energy

~Microwave
17. Insulator
~Item that doesn't transfer heat well

~Wooden spoon
18. 1st law of thermodynamics
~Increase internal energy due to ading heat or doing work

~ excercising in a small room
19. 2nd law of thermodynamics
~ Molecules want more entropy

~Kindergardners reading time vs. play time
20. Entropy
Molecules need for space
