light is form of energy then light is reflected at boundary of rarer medium and denser medium reflected ray is phase change of 180 degree's energy is phase changed direction of energy is opposite of transfer ed way

What is the role of energy in sublimation?

Any change of state (a.k.a. change of phase) involves a transfer of energy. The case of sublimation is similar to the evaporation of liquids: you have to input energy to turn the solid into a gas; you get energy back if the process occurs in the opposite direction (from gas to solid).
