How do you change the state of matter?

Changing the state of matter is known as phase change, change in temperature creates phase change when the freezing or boiling point is reached.


What is the phase change of matter from a gas to a solid?

The phase change from gas to solid is called deposition.


What is the phase change of matter from gas to plasma?

The phase change of gas to plasma is called ionization.


What is it called to change states of matter?

It is typically called a phase change. :)


Evaporation refers to the change of state from?

Evaporation is the phase change of matter when it goes from liquid to gas. The opposite phase change is condensation.


Why the temperature remain constant altough heat is absorbed from surrounding?

That will not happen unless matter is undergoing a phase change and the temperature you are measuring is that of the matter undergoing the phase change.


Change in matter where its identity does not change?

A change of phase doesn't change the chemical composition of a substance.


What happens to the mass during a phase change?

During a phase change. the mass of the substance does not change due to the conservation of mass. In a closed system, the mass does not change no matter what phase change or chemical reaction takes place.



What is needed for matter to change phase?

Heat is needed for matter to change form eg: Melting, condensation, etc.


How does the particle model of matter explain change of state matter?

Change in the phase of matter is just related to the distance between the particles, and hence a change in the amount of attractive forces.


A change in phase of matter?

Phase changes include melting, vaporization, freezing, condensation, deposition, and sublimation.


Are phase changes in matter permanent?

No. Water freezing into ice is a good example of a "phase change". Ice can melt back into water, so we know that the phase change is not permanent!


What are some ways to change a solid without changing its matter?

Just change the phase. Take the solid and melt it. That won't change the matter. Then you can boil the liquid and turn it into a gas. Again, that does not change the matter.


What are the changes of states of matter called?

I think its called a phase change.


What is the phase change of matter from the solid to gas form called?

Evaporation would be the phase change from liquid to gas. The phase change from solid to gas is called sublimation. A liquid can also boil and become a gas.



What happens to the particles of matter during a phase change?

The particles change mean speed and concentration.


What is 2 way matter can change?

Phase change - melting, evaporation, Nuclear fusion or fission.


What is the change of state called when a gas becomes a liquid?

Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from gaseous phase into liquid phase and is the reverse of evaporation.


What is the change in condesation?

Condensation is the change of state of matter from gaseous phase to liquid phase. It would be how water vapour in the air condense to become water droplets.


Chemicel and physical change of matter?

A chemical change in matter produces a new substance. A physical change, on the other hand, only alters the state or phase of matter without producing a new substance.


What is a change of one state to another?

The change from one state of matter to another is called a phase transition.


How do condensation and vapourisation differ?

Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from gaseous phase into liquid phase, and is the reverse of vaporization.
