1

Kinetic Energy

Energy that results from motion

2

Potential Energy

Energy possessed by an object by virtue of its position

3

Chemical Energy

Energy stored within the structural units of chemical substances

4

Electrostatic Energy

Potential energy that results from the interaction of charged particles

5

Law of Conservation of Energy

Energy can neither be created or destroyed

6

Electromagnetic Wave

Has an electric field component and a magnetic field component that have the same frequency, wavelength, amplitude, and thus the same speed, but travel in perpendicular planes

7

Planck's Theory

Energy is quantized, thus can only be emitted or absorbed in whole number quantities

8

Substance

Form of matter that has a definite composition and distinct properties such as, color, smell, and taste

9

Quantitative

Properties of a substance that are measured and expressed with a number

10

Qualitative

Properties of a substance not requiring explicit measurement

11

Extensive Properties

Depends on the amount of matter

12

Intensive Properties

Do not depend on the amount of matter

13

Photoelectric Effect

Electrons are ejected from the surface of a metal exposed to light in which the number of electrons ejected is proportional to the intensity of light

14

de Broglie Hypothesis

If an electron behaves like a standing wave, the wavelength must fit the circumference of the orbit exactly or be a multiple of the orbit or it will be canceled by destructive interference

15

Atomic Theory

Matter comes in fundamental units called atoms which cannot be divided
