The changes of state mention the physical characteristics of the elements, therefore, these changes can occur by fusion, boiling, condensation, solidification, sublimation. The changes can be seen with the naked eye.
10 Examples of State Changes
- Solid to liquid = fusion. When the ice melts and turns into water.
- Liquid to solid = freezing. When you prepare a cream to make ice cream, it goes from liquid to frozen.
- Liquid to gas = vaporization. It is when the water molecules turn into gas.
- Gas to liquid = condensation. A very simple example is dew drops where matter goes from a gaseous to a liquid state.
- Gas to solid = deposition. The particles are derived from the vapor of a solution or mixture.
- Solid to gas = sublimation. This change occurs when matter goes from a solid to a gaseous state, but without going through a liquid state.
- Gas to Plasma = Ionization This change can be observed in a plasma ball toy.
- Evaporation is a change of state that can occur at any temperature, this is usually observed faster when the temperature is high. This state is observed in sea water.
- Solidification is a change from liquid to solid, this process occurs when there is a good temperature.
- When the sugar is heated it dissolves.
- The ice when you take it out of the fridge melts.
- A piece of gold when subjected to a high temperature melts.
- The steam of a boiling water.
- The solidification of the water in the refrigerator when it is at a low temperature.
