Is there a distinction between thermal energy and internal energy? Which term do physicists prefer?
Step 1 of 3
• Substance that ﬂows • Take the shape of their container • Gases are compressible while liquids are incompressible • Density Measured in Mass density is independent of the objects size ‣ All objects of the same material will have the same density Gases have a lower density than liquids Liquid and temperature correlate when it comes to density • Pressure Units: Force due to a ﬂuid's pressure pushes on the walls of the container and all parts of the ﬂuid as well ‣ Thus if holes are punched in the container, water is able to come out of each one which is enabled by the pressure pushing water foreword Pressure in liquids ‣ Force of gravity is responsible for th
