Changes of State for Liquids
A change of state for a liquid is freezing. This change of state goes from a solid to a liquid. freezing is the reverse of melting. While freezing, the particles of a liquid move so slowly that they begin to form regular patterns. An example of freezing is when you put water in the freezer and it forms an ice cube. Another change of state is vaporization. This is when a liquid changes into a gas. vaporization is when the particles in a liquid gain enough energy to form a gas. One type of vaporization is evaporation. Evaporation only takes place on the surface of the liquid. A puddle evaporating from the ground is an example. The water gains enough energy from the ground, air, or sun that lets the water molecules disappear into the air. Also, another change is state from a liquid to gas is boiling. Boiling is another type of vaporization. boiling is when liquid changes to a gas below its surface. During this process, vaporized water molecules form bubbles below the surface and rise.
