==Concept #1 Specific Heat Capacity

Learning objectives

Notes for teachers

All molecules in matter vibrate and they possess kinetic energy. The more energy they have the more they will vibrate. The total amount of energy contained in the substance depends on the individual energy of the molecules and the number of molecules present. The temperature tells us what is the average of the kinetic energy. When temperature is high, that means average energy of the molecules is more and when they give out energy as heat, the average kinetic energy decreases, resulting in temperature decrease.
