NH.PS2. Physical Science: Energy is necessary for change to occur in matter. Energy can be stored, transferred and transformed, but cannot be destroyed.
S:PS2:8:1.1. Change: Students will explain how substances react chemically with other substances to form new substances, known as compounds, and that in such recombinations, the properties of the new substances may be very different from those of the old.
S:PS2:8:1.2. Change: Students will identify factors that affect reaction rates, such as temperature, concentration and surface area; and explain that dissolving substances in liquids often accelerates reaction rates.
S:PS2:8:3.5. Energy: Students will recognize that most chemical and nuclear reactions involve a transfer of energy.
