First Law of Thermodynamics: Law of Conservation of Energy

1. First Law of Thermodynamics: Law of Conservation of Energy

This video describes the first law of thermodynamics. Several examples of the application of this law are discussed. The significance of the law and its practical application are discussed as well.

Law of Conservation of Matter: Definition & Matter

2. Law of Conservation of Matter: Definition & Matter

In this lesson, we'll learn the definition of the Law of Conservation of Mass, sometimes called the Conservation of Matter. This lesson explores the discovery of this important principle and covers a few examples of how it works.

Kinetic Energy to Potential Energy: Relationship in Different Energy Types

3. Kinetic Energy to Potential Energy: Relationship in Different Energy Types

This video defines and describes kinetic and potential energy. You'll learn how different types of energy can be classified as potential and kinetic. You'll also find out how kinetic and potential energy are transformed.

Energy Transformation: Definition, Types & Examples

4. Energy Transformation: Definition, Types & Examples

In this lesson, you will learn about the different kinds of energy and how these types of energy can be transformed from one form to another. You will also learn about some uses of these energy transformations in everyday life.

Matter: Physical and Chemical Properties

5. Matter: Physical and Chemical Properties

How are substances identified? There are two major ways we can describe a substance: physical properties and chemical properties. Learn about how chemists use properties to classify matter as either a mixture or a pure substance.

States of Matter and Chemical Versus Physical Changes to Matter

6. States of Matter and Chemical Versus Physical Changes to Matter

The world around us is constantly changing. Chemists put those changes into two main categories: physical changes and chemical changes. This lesson will define and provide examples of each.

Phase Changes of Matter: Types & Examples

7. Phase Changes of Matter: Types & Examples

We are surrounded by matter. In this lesson, you will learn about phase changes of matter, and the types of phase changes that occur so you can recognize them in the future.

The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Solids and Liquids

8. The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Solids and Liquids

This lesson explores the kinetic molecular theory and how it pertains to the properties of solids and liquids. You'll learn the properties of solids and liquids, discover the types of intermolecular attractions that occur between them and gain an understanding how phase changes happen.

The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Gases

9. The Kinetic Molecular Theory: Properties of Gases

What makes a gas ideal? What types of characteristics do ideal gases have? In this lesson, we will discuss the many characteristics of gases and how knowing the microscopic properties of gas particles will help you understand the macroscopic properties of a gas.

Converting Celsius to Fahrenheit and Back

10. Converting Celsius to Fahrenheit and Back

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius measurements of temperature. This will help when you visit the doctor and when you travel to different countries.

Temperature Units: Converting Between Kelvin and Celsius

11. Temperature Units: Converting Between Kelvin and Celsius

Have you ever wondered what the lowest possible temperature is? In this lesson, you will learn what temperature measures. You will also be introduced to the Kelvin scale (an absolute scale) and learn how it relates to the Celsius scale.

Mechanisms of Heat Transfer: Conduction, Convection & Radiation

12. Mechanisms of Heat Transfer: Conduction, Convection & Radiation

There are three main ways that heat is transferred between substances or objects. In this video lesson you'll learn about each one, and identify the differences between them.
