E. Changes in State (phase changes) 1. Melting - solid to liquid a. Particles get more kinetic energy and begin rotating around each other. b. There isn’t enough energy to break the inter-particular attractions, so the particles remain close (liquid). c. The energy required to melt a solid is called the heat of fusion .

2. Freezing - liquid to solid a. Particles lose kinetic energy and slow down. b. Attractive forces between particles become stronger than the particles’ motion, so the particles begin merely vibrating in place. c. The amount of heat the particles must lose to turn into a solid is called the heat of fusion .

3. Vaporization - liquid to gas a. Types: 1) Boiling - rapid; gas bubbles are produced throughout. 2) Evaporation - slow; occurs at the surface. b. Liquid particles gain enough kinetic energy to overcome forces between the

Unformatted text preview: particles and they begin translational motion; this energy is called the heat of vaporization . 4. Evaporation is a cooling process. a. Particles in a liquid gain kinetic energy. b. They leave as gas particles (taking the energy away with them). c. This leaves less energy in the liquid, therefore cooling down what is left. 5. Condensation - gas to liquid a. Particles lose kinetic energy, slow down, and come closer together. b. Inter-particular forces become strong enough to make particles merely rotate around each other. c. The energy they lose to turn into a liquid is the heat of vaporization . 6. Sublimation - solid to gas or gas to solid a. Dry ice - carbon dioxide b. Iodine c. Frost 7. During phase changes there is no change of temperature....
