Earth and Physical Science Vocabulary Worksheets

Physical Science Vocabulary Words You Should Learn

It is the study of inanimate natural objects. It refers to the field or subjects such as chemistry, physics, astronomy, and associated subjects. Here, we are going to learn physical science vocabulary. Variable - It is an element that scientist uses it to test and experiment. Hypothesis - It is a statement that researchers have to prove through experiment or their research in the end. It is evident that all your research work or material is true, and you have found them from reliable sources. You have to give evidence by testing all your experiments many times. Physical change - It is the method in which a substance changes its state. Chemical change - It is the process in which a substance changes its state. It involves different chemicals with a reactive catalyst. Plasma - It is the fourth stage of matter as it has a high energy level that can't contain from ordinary matter. It consists of ions, electrons, and neutral atoms at specific temperatures. You will find plasma rare on Earth but most in stars. Compound - Multiple elements group together into molecules. Different molecules group together into the compound. All of these combinations are based on chemical reactions.
