Question Answer
Heat The thermal energy transferred from one object to another because of a difference in temperature.
Thermal equilibrium Two objects placed in thermal contact would eventually come to the same temperature.
Ideal gas An ideal gas is one that obeys the gas laws for all values of P,V and T. (Cannot be liquefied)
Pressure law The pressure of a fixed mass of gas at a constant volume is directly proportional to its temperature
Charles’s law The volume of a fixed mass of gas at a constant pressure is directly proportional to its absolute temperature.
Boyle’s law The pressure of a fixed mass of gas at a constant temperature is inversely proportional to the volume.
