Metallic Conduction

Conduction of electrical current through a metal or along a metallic surface.

Evaporization

Vaporization of a liquid below its boiling point.

Melting Point

The temperature at which liquid and solid coexist in equilibrium, also the freezing point.

Can water burn?

It’s known that water consists of atoms of molecules of oxygen and hydrogen. Since any compound with oxygen indicates the ability of the substance to burn, water is no exception. Thus, water has a surprising property of already "burnt out" compound.

Flash Point

The temperature at which a liquid will yield enough flamable vapour to ignite. There are various recognized industrial testing methods, therefore the method used must be stated.

Hydration Energy

The energy change accompanying the hydration of a mole of gase and ions.

Alcohol

Hydrocarbon derivative containing an --OH group attached to a carbon atom not in an aromatic ring. Alcohols are a class of organic compounds containing the hydroxyl group, OH, attached to a carbon atom.

Colligative Properties

Physical properties of solutions that depend upon the number but not the kind of solute particles present.

Method of Initial Rates

Method of determining the rate-law expression by carrying out a reaction with different initial concentrations and analyzing the resultant changes in initial rates.

Polar Bond

Covalent bond in which there is an unsymmetrical distribution of electron density.
