A substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction without itself being consumed. (13.6)
Energy stored within the structural units of chemical substances. (6.1)
A property of a solvent (vapor-pressure lowering, freezing-point lowering, boiling-point elevation, osmotic pressure) that depends on the total concentration of solute particles present. (Section 13.5)
The process in which the molecules go directly from the vapor into the solid phase. (11.8)
