It would be turned into hail.
Snow or ice. If it passed through an intermediate water phase, it would be hail.
Well, the solid form of water vapor would be ice.
When a solid changes directly into a vapor without passing through the liquid state is a physical change called sublimation.
Solid to vapor is sublimation.
it's known as sublimation
Water ice turns directly into water vapor through the process of sublimation. Water vapor turns directly into ice in a process called deposition.
Sublimation: the process in which a solid changes directly into a gas (without passing a liquid).
When water changes from a solid (ice) directly into a gas (water vapor), it is called sublimation.
The most well known is dry ice, which changes directly from solid carbon dioxide into the gaseous state. Water can change directly from ice into water vapor (a dry wind blowing over a snow bank will reduce its volume as the frozen water changes directly into water vapor). These are examples of sublimation.
Ice forms when water vapor changes directly to ice.
Condensation, which changes vapor to liquid water, and freezing, which changes liquid water to solid ice.
a solid can change directly into a vapor if it is super heated very fast so fast that the solid does not have time to turn into a liquid
The process in which solid directly changes into gas is called sublimation. Solid carbon dioxide is a substance that changes directly into gas without melting. Sublimation happens because these substances have higher vapor pressure than melting point.
If something changes directly from a solid to a gas, it is said to sublime. This happens at time with ice, for example, were, instead of melting to a liquid it converts directly to water vapor.
Deposition is the conversion of a gas to a solid
The scientific word is precipitation.
Examples of a gas changing directly into a solid (deposition) - Water vapor in a cloud changing into solid snowflakes. Water vapor in the air turning directly to frost on any sub-freezing surfaces.
Ice can also sublimate, which means that it changes from solid to vapor directly, without melting.
Precipitation and runoff
It is called sublimation.
It changes of state from solid directly into gas (vapor) without getting fluidised (by melting first). It is used in freeze-drying
In physics, sublimation means that a substance changes from solid directly to gas. In this case, from ice to water vapor.
The processes that occur in the water cycle: precipitation: when liquid or solid water falls from clouds transpiration: water evaporating out of plants condensation: when water vapor changes into liquid evaporation: when liquid becomes gas
Condensation is the form in which water vapor changes into liquid. If water vapor in the atmosphere cools enough, it changes back into liquid. This process of water vapor changing to a liquid is called Condensation.
