## States of Matter

Thermal energy is heat energy.  Heat affects all matter by increasing the speed of particles.  Check out this website to see how heat affects the particle movement of matter.

Inside every object or substance are tiny particles (molecules). These particles are always moving. In cooler substances, the particles are moving slowly. In hotter substances, the particles move much faster.  Trace how thermal energy can transfer from one object to another by conduction.

## What is heat?

Heat is energy.  Heat energy is also called thermal energy.  Thermal energy is the total amount of energy in a substance.  Heat is the movement of energy from one thing to another due to a difference in temperature.

Matter is made up of particles called atoms and molecules.  They bump into each other.  They vibrate back and forth.  The more heat energy an object has, the faster the atoms and molecules move.  All of the particles in matter are moving.  A pot of hot water has a lot of heat energy.  The atoms and molecules in the hot water move faster than the atoms and molecules in cooler water move.  A pot of hot water has more thermal energy than the same pot of water has at a cooler temperature.

## Kids Korner - Conductors and Insulators

Conductors are made of materials that heat can flow through easily.
These materials are made up of atoms whose electrons can move away freely
