Definition of Terms
Definitions of terms pertinent to this study include:
• Chemistry: "The study of matter and the changes it undergoes" (Buthelezi, et al, 2008, p.
• Kinetic-molecular theory: "Describes the behavior of gases in terms of...
Students understand the tremendous energy released in nuclear reactions is a result of
small amounts of matter being converted to energy.
P3.p1 Conservation of Energy (prerequisite)
When energy is transferred from one system to another, the...
Chemical reactions involve breaking bonds in reactants (endothermic) and forming new
bonds in the products (exothermic). The enthalpy change for a chemical reaction will
depend on the relative strengths of the bonds in the...
