define heat and temp.
Heat- thermal energy that is moving or is capable of moving
Temperature- measures the kinetic energy per atom due to random motion
Describe the behavior of atoms and molecules as matter undergoes phase changes
solid- when it transforms into a solid it hold its position and cannot flow so the molecules are in a solid vibrate but don't move for
liquid-the molecules are as close together as a solid but they can move around
gas-the molecules in a gas have enough energy to break away from each other and are much farther apart than molecules in a solid or liquid
identify and describe particles which comprise atoms
proton-a particle found in the nucleus with a positive charge
neutron- a particle found in the nucleus and doesn't have a charge
electron-a particle with an electric charge but not in the nucleus
nucleus- the core of the atom.
compare and contrast forces inside atoms
positive charges are repelling but the only thing that is keeping the atom together is Strong Nuclear Forces.
explain the Bohr atom model
atoms only change their energy levels when they absorb or emit light, they can't be in between energy levels
Differentiate physical and chemical properties of elements
Physical properties are properties that can be measured and observed and chemical properties can only be observed when one substance changes into another.
Explain how the periodic table is organized
It is organized by how they combine with other elements.
Differentiate the electrical and thermal conductivity of metals and nonmetals
With electrical conductivity you allow electrons to flow easily through them and the heat flows through the metal walls easily.
Define periodicity and discuss examples
Periodicity means that properties repeat each period of the periodic table. An example is the pattern of melting and boiling points.
Predict properties of an element based on its position on the periodic table
As you go down the rows you increase the levels of electrons. Also, the first 82 elements are mainly naturally a gas or a solid.
