Experiment
a series of actions carried out to test a theory, demonstrate a fact or find out what happens
Convection
the transportation of heat from one place to another by the movement of a liquid or gas (A classroom is warmed by a hot air blower due to convection.)
Continuous
steady; uninterrupted
Circuit
a closed path through which an electric current flows
Energy
the capacity to do work
Antimatter
matter that is exactly the opposite in every way from its matter counterpart: antiquark/quark; positron/electron
Accelerator
a machine which accelerates charged particles to high energies
Element
any substance that cannot be broken up into simpler substances by chemical means (Currently 115 elements have been observed and are displayed on the Periodic Table of Elements. Gold, silver, iodine, oxygen and nickel are examples of elements.)
Atom
the smallest unit of a chemical element, made up of a nucleus surrounded by electrons
Celsius
a temperature scale on which water freezes at 0° and boils at 100°
Coordinate
a set of numbers that determines the location of a point in space
CEBAF
former name of Jefferson Lab; stands for Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility
Conductor
a material (like a metal) through which electricity and heat flow easily
BEAMS
the acronym for Becoming Enthusiastic About Math and Science
Chemical Reaction
a chemical change in which one or more substances are changed into one or more new substances
Electron
a tiny particle with a negative charge which orbits an atom's nucleus
Computer
a programmable machine that inputs, processes and outputs data
uninterrupted
the transportation of heat from one place to another by the movement of a liquid or gas (A classroom is warmed by a hot air blower due to convection.)
Dependent Variable
the responding variable; the variable that may change as a result of a change in the independent variable
Compound
a substance composed of two or more elements, such as water (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), or table sugar (C12H22O11)
Charge
the amount of electricity carried by a body (A charge can be negative, like an electron, or positive, like a proton. Objects with opposite charges attract one another, while objects with like charges repel one another.)
Electric Current
movement of electricity, measured in charges per second (just as river current is measured in liters per second)
stands for Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility
a temperature scale on which water freezes at 0° and boils at 100°
Electromagnet
a wire coil around a metal core (usually iron) that acts like a magnet when an electric current flows through it
Conduction
the transportation of heat or electricity from one place to another directly through an object (A frying pan is warmed by a hot stove due to conduction.)
Accelerate
to speed up
Accelerate
to speed up
Beam
a ray of light; a group of particles traveling together along a well-defined path
a group of particles traveling together along a well-defined path
the acronym for Becoming Enthusiastic About Math and Science
Engineer
a person who uses science and math to design, build or operate equipment, structures and systems (A person who receives a college degree in engineering might be an electrical, mechanical, industrial, chemical, environmental, biochemical or aeronautical engineer.)
positron/electron
the smallest unit of a chemical element, made up of a nucleus surrounded by electrons
Chemical Change
a change in the chemical composition of a substance to produce a new material with new properties (An example of a chemical change is wood turning to ash and smoke when it burns.)
red
rojoAccelerate - to speed up
the variable that may change as a result of a change in the independent variable
movement of electricity, measured in charges per second (just as river current is measured in liters per second)
Chemical Properties
characteristics of a substance that determine how it will react with other substances
Cryogenics
the science of very low temperatures, far below the freezing point of water
Data
a group of measurements, facts or statistics
Colloidal Suspension
a material that has properties of more than one state of matter, such as Jell-o
