       What Will Be Covered
 Kinetic Energy
 Kelvin Temperature

 How the Two Are Related

 The Kelvin Scale
                Kinetic Energy
   Kinetic energy is the energy an object has
    because of its motion
            Kelvin Temperature
   Kelvin Temperature, or absolute zero, is the
    temperature at which the motion of particles
    probably stops.
       How the Two Are Related
   An increase in the average kinetic energy of
    particles causes the temperature of a substance
    to rise.
   As a substance cools, the particles move more
    slowly, and their average kinetic energy declines
   Particles would have no kinetic energy at
    absolute zero because they would have no
   The following graph shows the distribution of
    kinetic energies at two different temperatures:

   The Kelvin temperature scale reflects the
    relationship between temperature and average
    kinetic energy.
   The Kelvin temperature of a substance is
    directly equal to the average kinetic energy of
    the particles of a substance.
The Kelvin Scale

   Kelvin temperature effects the kinetic energy of
    a substance
   If temperature increases, so does energy
   At any given temperature the particles of all
    substances, regardless of physical state, have the
    same kinetic energy.
   All information gathered was from the
    Chemistry textbook pgs 269-272
