In this lesson we studied solids and liquids - the condensed phases of matter. We learned to correlate some of their basic properties with the strength of the intermolecular bonding that holds their atoms or molecules together. We also learned how to do calculations involving amounts of heat energy and both temperature and phase changes, and in doing so we learned about both heat capacities and the latent heats (the heat of vaporization and the heat of fusion).
At this point you should review once more the objectives for this lesson to make sure you have mastered them all.
