Vaporization

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Most substances undergo a change of state from solid to liguid to a gaseous state as the temperature rises.  When a liquid is changed to a gas, the process is either called vaporization or boiling.   The difference between boiling and evaporation is that boiling is below the surface of the liquid, and evaporation is at the surface of the liquid.  When a solid is changed to a gas, the process is called sublimation.
