Sublimation is a term that refers to a process whereby a solid substance transitions directly into a gaseous state, thus bypassing the liquid state. There are several synonyms for this term, including vaporization, evaporation, and volatilization. These terms are often used interchangeably, with slight differences in meaning. Vaporization refers to the transformation of a liquid into a gas, while evaporation is the process by which a liquid turns into a vapor. Volatilization, on the other hand, refers to the process where a solid or liquid substance is converted into a vapor through some form of chemical reaction or physical change. Regardless of the terminology used, sublimation and its synonyms all describe an important natural phenomenon that plays a critical role in many industrial and scientific applications.
