Problem? ?5RQ What is sublimation?
Step 1 of 3
Solution 5RQ Sublimation is a process of phase transition in which the phase of the substance changes directly from solid to gas phase without passing through the liquid phase. If we plot the temperature vs pressure of any substance, at a certain point of the graph, the solid, liquid and gas phase co-exist. The point is called triple point. Below this temperature, there is no liquid phase of the substance. So if we reduce temperature of the substance below triple point and then reduce the pressure ofthe substance, we will see that the solid is converting to gas directly. This process is called sublimation.
