Kinetic Energy and Temperature
energy possessed by an object in motion
thermal energy transferred between two objects
heat flows from hotter object to colder object
The energy associated with motion is called
Thermal energy is
Hot objects begin to cool as
related to the average kinetic energy
measure of how hot or cold an object is
increase temperature causes an increase of average kinetic energy
decrease in average kinetic energy causes a decrease in temperature
measured in Celsius, Fahrenheit or Kelvin
Celsius: water freezes at 0 C and boils at 100 C
Fahrenheit: water freezes at 32 F and boils at 212 F
Kelvin: water freezes at 273 K and boils at 373 K
At higher temperature
Which of the following is TRUE when particles GAIN thermal energy?
What happens to particle movement/speed when energy is removed?
The temperature of a substance increases as
Particles are always moving
If particles of two substances have the same average kinetic energy, then
________ is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a material
The energy transferred between object's at different temperatures
How does the speed of the particles in a substance relate to the temperature of the substance?
How does kinetic energy relate to the spread of COVID-19?
