### The water and coils take 7 minutes to get below 32 degrees. The Cycle is only 10 minutes long so the 3 minutes it's below 32 is not long enough to make ice.

You are forgetting about the heat of fusion,
The energy required to change a gram of a substance from the solid to the liquid state without changing its temperature is commonly called it's "heat of fusion". This energy breaks down the solid bonds, but leaves a significant amount of energy associated with the intermolecular forces of the liquid state. It amounts of 80 cal per gram.

Phase Changes

### How do the values for total mass before and after reaction demonstrate the law of conservation of matter?

"
1. The law of conservation of mass, or principle of mass conservation, states that for any system closed to all transfers of matter and energy (both of which have mass), the mass of the system must remain constant over time, as system mass cannot change quantity if it is not added or removed."
In other words matter cannot be created or destroyed, only converted, into heat, energy, work, or other matter.

If your system is not closed (it probably isn't) and mass does not remain equal, then it is most likely that energy was gained or lost by the system. This most likely was in the form of heat.

You will need a pretty good scales to detect this though, as a tiny amount of matter = a huge amount of energy

### What is the measure of the average amount of kinetic energy of the atoms are molecules in a material

The average kinetic energy of a distribution of free non-interacting particles is related to the absolute temperature.Thus the absolute temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of the population.

### What are the benefits of undergoing therapeutic massage therapy?

Benefits of massage:
• Relieves muscle tension by enhancing blood flow, which causes muscles to relax
• Decreases inflammation by activating genes that naturally reduce swelling
• Reduces pain intensity by diminishing bodily substances that create and prolong pain
• Improves recovery by stimulating mitochondria, the "energy packs" driving cellular function and repair

### What is matter?

Matter is a substance that has inertia and occupies physical space. According to modern physics, matter consists of various types of particles, each with mass and size.
The most familiar examples of material particles are the electron, the proton and the neutron. Combinations of these particles form atoms. There are more than 100 different kinds of atoms, each kind constituting a unique chemical element. A combination of atoms forms a molecule. Atoms and/or molecules can join together to form a compound.
Matter can exist in several states, also called phases. The three most common states are known as solid, liquid and gas. A single element or compound of matter might exist in more than one of the three states, depending on the temperature and pressure. Less familiar states of matter include plasma, foam and Bose-Einstein condensate. These states occur under special conditions.
Different kinds of matter can combine to form substances that may not resemble any of the original ingredients. For example, hydrogen (a gaseous element) and oxygen (another gaseous element) combine to form water (a liquid compound at room temperature). The process of such combination is called a chemical reaction. A chemical reaction involves interactions between the electrons of the atoms, but does not affect the nuclei of the atoms.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

### Define physics

Hi.

(Physics / General Physics) the branch of science concerned with the properties of matter and energy and the relationships between them. It is based on mathematics and traditionally includes mechanics, optics, electricity and magnetism, acoustics, and heat. Modern physics, based on quantum theory, includes atomic, nuclear, particle, and solid-state studies. It can also embrace applied fields such as geophysics and meteorology.

Regards.

### What is chemistry?

Chemistry - is the science of matter and the changes it undergoes. The science of matter is also addressed by physics, but while physics takes a more general and fundamental approach, chemistry is more specialized, being concerned with the composition, behavior (or reaction), structure, and properties of matter, as well as the changes it undergoes during chemical reactions.

- It is a physical science which studies various substances, atoms, molecules, crystals and other aggregates of matter whether in isolation or combination, and which incorporates the concepts of energy and entropy in relation to the spontaneity of chemical processes.

### 1994 dishwasher doesn't clean as well as it did a few months ago. Are there filters to clean or service tips? Seems to cycle OK.

Most dishwashers have self cleaning filters which would not require attention unless unusual items or amounts of debris were in the dishwasher. Your most likely problem area would be the holes in the spray arms are plugged with debris.
By the way, the average life of a dishwasher is 9 to 11 years. Newer models are generally quieter and more energy efficient, and many states are just rolling out their government sponsored energy star rebates. (similar to the car " cash for clunkers" program but much less money, and administered by each individual state. These rebates vary by individual states, and will go fast. (where I am, the rebate is \$150 for dishwashers and starts March 1. 2010) Might be something to look into.

### I want to know how works

To understand this answer, you must first understand you cannot cool anything. Rather, you must remove its heat. You must accept that heat is energy and that energy cannot be destroyed. You must also understand that heat wants to go where it is cool.

An Air Conditioner "cools" by moving heat from one place to another using the ideas represented above..

An A/C compresses a gas into a liquid then sprays that liquid through a small hole where it returns to its former state, a gas. Then this happens, the gs is cold having given up its heat in the spraying process. The air passing over this cold gas (in a tube) passes the heat it contains to that cold pipe which absorbes it and moves it usually to the out of doors where a fan blowing relatively cooler over another set of coils and the heat passes from the hot coil to the cooler air.

From a physics stand point, you cannot destroy energy. In this case, heat is energy and we cannot destroy that energy. But, we can move it from place to place ... and when we move it to the out side, we dulute that energy into the atmosphere.
