Give two different ways of making liquid sodium change into sodium vapor.
The state of matter of a substance is governed by the arrangement of the atoms that comprise it. Depending on the temperature and pressure, the particles may be locked in a rigid structure (solid), linked but confined to the shape of the container they inhabit (liquid), or freely floating around their container (vapor).
Answer and Explanation: 1
Substances change phase from liquid to vapor when the external temperature is raised beyond the substance's boiling point, or the external pressure is...

Matter changes phases when it transforms from one state to another, such as from a liquid into a gas. Explore the definition, types, and examples of phase changes of matter. Understand how to define matter, and recognize that matter can experience up to eight phase changes, including condensation, sublimation, and ionization.
