PHY 101- Physical Science I: Matter & Heat

This guide complements the course for Physical Science I

Matter & Heat

The topics of Matter & Heat can be found in chapter 5 of you textbook. Key topics in this area include temperature and heat, fluids, the kinetic theory of matter, changes of state, and energy transformations.

Forms of Energy

Forms of Energy

"Energy is never created nor destroyed; it is just transferred from one form to another. This video uses an engaging presenter and familiar objects and scenarios to explore different forms of energy, their effects on objects and processes, and conversion from one form to another. Sections include what is energy, kinetic energy (including electrical, radiant and sound), potential energy and energy transformations. Students of science at lower to middle levels will find this resource ideal for consolidating their understanding of these important fundamental areas."

Changing States of Matter

Changing States of Matter

"This Science Screen Report uses experiments and everyday phenomena to explore the properties of matter and how physical forces cause state changes at the boiling, melting, freezing, and dew point. The program also demonstrates how different states of matter can be combined in suspensions and solutions and how such mixtures can be separated into their components."
