# What is it called when a solid becomes a gas without becoming a liquid first?

## What is it called when a solid becomes a gas without becoming a liquid first?

Sublimation is the process of transformation directly from the solid phase to the gaseous phase, without passing through an intermediate liquid phase.

What is it called when you go from a liquid to solid?

Freezing, or solidification, is a phase transition in which a liquid turns into a solid when its temperature is lowered to or below its freezing point.

### How does gas turn into solid?

Deposition is the phase transition in which gas transforms into solid without passing through the liquid phase. Deposition is a thermodynamic process. The reverse of deposition is sublimation and hence sometimes deposition is called desublimation.

How do gases become liquids?

You need to lose some energy from your very excited gas atoms. The easy answer is to lower the surrounding temperature. When the temperature drops, energy will be transferred out of your gas atoms into the colder environment. When you reach the temperature of the condensation point, you become a liquid.

## What is the process of a gas changing back into a liquid called?

Condensation — going from a gas to a liquid.

How does gas turn into a liquid?

If a gas is cooled, its particles will eventually stop moving about so fast and form a liquid. This is called condensation and occurs at the same temperature as boiling. Evaporation is dependent on individual particles gaining enough energy to escape the surface of the liquid and become gas particles.

### What is the name of the change of state from gas to liquid?

Condensation
Condensation is the change of state from a gas to a liquid.

What process turns gas into liquid?

## What is a gas changing to solid?

Deposition is the phase transition in which gas transforms into solid without passing through the liquid phase. The reverse of deposition is sublimation and hence sometimes deposition is called desublimation.

Can a gas change from a liquid to a solid?

Yes, under certain conditions, a gas, when cooled or put under pressure, can change directly into a solid without going through a liquid phase. There are two terms for this: deposition and desublimation.

### What do you call the transition from liquid to gas?

Liquid to gas phase transitions are known as “vaporization.”. Liquid to solid phase transitions are known as “freezing.”. Solid to liquid phase transitions are known as “melting.”. Solid to gas phase transitions are known as “sublimation.”.

What is the term given to a solid substance that changes its state into?

Changing from solid directly to gas is called sublimation. In cold dry air snow/ice will “disappear” without melting. It has sublimated. Iodine (solid at room temperature) will vaporize without melting when heated – it has sublimated.

## What do we call the process of the conversion of gas?

Under certain circumstances, gas can transform directly into a solid. This process is called deposition. Water vapor to ice – Water vapor transforms directly into ice without becoming a liquid, a process that often occurs on windows during the winter months.
