      heat           thermal insulator
                                            a measure of how hot (or cold) something
the kinetic energy of a substance's atoms   is; specifically, a measure of the average
                                            kinetic energy of the particles in an object




                                              an increase in the size of a substance in
the transfer of energy as heat through a    response to an increase in the temperature
                 material                                of the substance




                                            the temperature at which molecular energy
a material through which energy can be      is at a minimum (0 K on the Kelvin scale or
           transferred as heat                    –273.16ºC on the Celsius scale)




                                            the energy transferred between objects that
                                              are at different temperatures; energy is
 a material that reduces or prevents the    always transferred from higher-temperature
             transfer of heat                objects to lower-temperature objects until
                                                  thermal equilibrium is reached

states of matter   thermal pollution
                                                the movement of matter due to differences
   the change of a substance from one            in density that are caused by temperature
         physical state to another                 variations; can result in the transfer of
                                                               energy as heat




                                                      the energy that is transferred as
  a substance that reduces the transfer of      electromagnetic waves, such as visible light
         electricity, heat, or sound                        and infrared waves




                                                the quantity of heat required to raise a unit
    a machine that transforms heat into         mass of homogeneous material 1 K or 1ºC
       mechanical energy, or work               in a specified way given constant pressure
                                                                and volume

 that is caused by human activity and that        the physical forms of matter, which are
has a harmful effect on water quality and on           solid, liquid, gas, and plasma
 the ability of that body of water to support
                       life
