Edexcel GCSE Physics Topic 14 - Particle Model 




Below is everything the examiners think you know, if you're not sure of something click on the link to watch my YouTube video explanation. For a copy of these you can print off, get the FREE revision guide I wrote for you.


 I can recall the arrangement of particles in a solid, a liquid and a gas

 • I can describe the energy changes that happen when a substance changes state

 • I can describe the energy in the atoms and molecules as internal energy

 • I can explain that a change in the internal energy will lead to a change in temperature or a change in state

 • I can define density

 • I can recall the units needed for ρ = m/v

 • I can rearrange ρ = m/v

 • I can use ρ = m/v

 • I can define specific heat capacity and specific latent heat

 • I can recall the units needed for ΔQ = mcΔθ

 • I can rearrange ΔQ = mcΔθ

 • I can use ΔQ = mcΔθ

 • I can recall the units needed for Q = mL

 • I can rearrange Q = mL

 • I can use Q = mL

 • I can describe how to reduce energy loss by insulation

 • I can describe the movement of particles in a gas

 • I can relate the temperature of the gas to the average kinetic energy of the system

 • I can describe the movement of particles at absolute zero

 • I can convert between kelvin and Celsius - Physics only

 • I can explain how the motion of a gas relates to the pressure in a system - Physics only

 • I can relate the volume of a gas to the pressure - Physics only

 • I can recall the units needed for P1V1 = P²V² - Physics only

 • I can rearrange P1V1 = P²V² - Physics only

 • I can use P1V1 = P²V² - Physics only

 • I can explain how doing work on a system can increase the temperature - Higher tier only - Physics only
