Forms Of Water

Overview:

In nature, water exists in three forms: solid, liquid and gas. Water changes its form either by heating or by cooling. Condensation and Evaporation are opposite processes. In the same way, Freezing and Melting are opposite processes. Sublimation and deposition are direct processes with no intermediate liquid phase.

Explanation:

Evaporation is the process in which liquid changes into gas on heating.

Condensation is the process in which gas into liquid on cooling.

Melting is the process on which solid changes into liquid on heating.

Freezing is the process in which liquid changes into solid on cooling.

Sublimation is the process in which there is no liquid stage. For example: Camphor sublime on heating which means it (solid) will change into gas on heating. Therefore, it is the process of direct change of solid into gas with no intermediate liquid phase.

Deposition is the process of direct change of gas into solid with no intermediate liquid phase.
