Phase Changes

Postby AlyssaPeckham1A » Tue Jan 09, 2018 6:51 pm

What are some important phase changes to know? (such as changes between solids/liquids/gases)

Hey,
Some of the phase changes that you should know include:
Vaporization: liquid to vapor, Melting: solid to liquid, Sublimation: solid to vapor (Endothermic)
Freezing:liquid to solid, Condensation: gas to liquid, Deposition: gas to solid (Exothermic)

The most important phase changes would probably be between solids and liquids (melting and freezing) along with phase changes between liquids and gases (evaporation and condensation).

I think sublimation (solid to gas) and deposition (gas to solid) i might also be talked about in class, though I'm not actually sure.

It may also be helpful to know that fusion is another term that is the same phase change as melting (solid to liquid)
