What are the three phases of matter in the case of water?
It is not entirely correct to talk about "the" three phases. There are actually more than three phases of matter. In the case of water, the three "main" phases are called: "ice" (for solid water), "liquid water" or just "water" for the liquid phase, and "water vapor" for the gaseous phase. In the case of water, and many other substances, there is also a "supercritical" phase (among others). I don't think this one has a special name, in the case of water....

What are the three phases of water How does water change from one phase to another?
The three phases of water are, liquid, solid and gas. Water changes from liquid to solid by Freezing. It changes from liquid to gas by Evaporation. It changes from solid to gas by Sublimation. It changes from solid to liquid by Melting. It changes from gas to liquid by Condensation. ...
