 • I can use and recall the equations and the units for this unit as shown in the equation sheet

 • I can recall and use the equation linking density, mass and volume

 • I can define density

 • I can describe a practical investigation into density using measurements of mass and volume

 • I can recall and use the equation linking pressure, force and area

 • I can recall that pressure acts equally in all directions in a gas or a liquid at rest

 • I can recall and use the equation linking pressure difference, height, density and gravitational field strength

 • I can explain how a heating system works

 • 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 a practical investigation of how to create a graph showing change of state using temperature and time measurements

 • I can define ‘specific heat capacity’

 • I can describe how objects have different specific heat capacities

 • I can recall the units needed for ΔQ = mcΔT

 • I can describe absolute zero (–273 °C) as 0 Kelvin

 • I can convert between the Kelvin and Celsius scales

 • I can explain why increasing temperature results in gas particles moving faster

 • I can state that the temperature in Kelvin of a gas is proportional to the average kinetic energy of its molecules
