Presentation For Science

  1. 1. The Kinetic Theory of Matter & Thermal Energy Zac Wilde Block 4
  2. 2. The Kinetic Theory of Matter A theory that matter is composed of small particles, all in random motion
  3. 3. Thermal Energy • Is the energy resulting from the motion of particles
  4. 4. Thermal Energy Continued • Is a form of kinetic energy and is transferred by heat
  5. 5. State of Matter • The state of matter an object takes depends on its thermal energy
  6. 6. Motion of Particles • The motion of molecules in an object dictates what state of matter the object is
  7. 7. Thermal Energy and Motion • An increase or decrease in thermal energy affects the motion of particles in an object
  8. 8. Increase in Thermal Energy • If an object gains thermal energy, the motion of its particles increases
  9. 9. Decrease in Thermal Energy • If an object loses thermal energy to the environment, the motion of its particles decreases
  10. 10. Energy Matters! • Thermal energy is an important element of the Kinetic Theory of Matter
  11. 11. Explanation • A gain or loss of thermal energy affects the motion of particles
  12. 12. Conclusion • The Kinetic Theory of matter is all about motion of particles therefore the two are related
  13. 13. Remember • “Loss or gain of thermal energy is what makes the world go.” Mr. McCarthy
