compound
A chemical compound is an entity consisting of two or more atoms, at least two from different elements, which associate via chemical bonds
element
In mathematics, an element, or member, of a set is any one of the distinct objects that make up that set
mixture

Thermal expansion
Thermal expansion is the tendency of matter to change in shape, area, and volume in response to a change in temperature, through heat transfer
work
In physics, a force is said to do work if, when acting there is a displacement of the point of application in the direction of the force
Physical properties
A physical property is any property that is measurable, whose value describes a state of a physical system
conductors
In physics and electrical engineering, a conductor is an object or type of material that allows the flow of an electrical current in one or more directions
