What is Heat? - Definition & Explanation

1. What is Heat? - Definition & Explanation

In this lesson, you will learn the definition of heat and find out how it differs from temperature. You will also explore practical applications of heat such as expansion, thermodynamics, heat transfer, specific heat, phase transitions, and heat engines.

What is Temperature? - Definition & Measurement

2. What is Temperature? - Definition & Measurement

In the most intuitive terms, temperature refers to how hot or cold something is. Learn more about temperature as a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object and test your knowledge with quiz questions.

Mechanisms of Heat Transfer: Conduction, Convection & Radiation

3. 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.

What is Evaporation? - Definition & Examples

4. What is Evaporation? - Definition & Examples

Evaporation is the process of a substance in a liquid state changing to a gaseous state due to an increase in temperature and/or pressure. Evaporation is a fundamental part of the water cycle and is constantly occurring throughout nature.

What is Condensation? - Definition & Examples

5. What is Condensation? - Definition & Examples

Condensation is the process of a substance in a gaseous state transforming into a liquid state. This change is caused by a change in pressure and temperature of the substance. In this lesson, you will learn about some examples and test your knowledge with a short quiz.

The Processes of Melting & Freezing

6. The Processes of Melting & Freezing

Substances can go through physical changes that don't change their chemical makeup. Two important phase changes are melting and freezing. You might think of these as being very different, but in reality they are very similar in several ways.

Chromatography, Distillation and Filtration: Methods of Separating Mixtures

7. Chromatography, Distillation and Filtration: Methods of Separating Mixtures

What are some ways that mixtures can be separated? Watch this video to explore several examples of ways you can separate a mixture into its individual components.

Water Displacement Method & Calculating Density

8. Water Displacement Method & Calculating Density

Measuring the volume and density of irregular objects can be difficult. But there is a way to do this that doesn't require much work at all. In fact, all you need is some water, a scale, and a calculator to help you out.

Density: Definition, Formula & Practice Problems

9. Density: Definition, Formula & Practice Problems

In this lesson, you'll learn about density, the way in which density can be calculated from mass and volume, and that density of substances are constant. You'll get to calculate densities of various materials in different situations.
