Boiling

Boiling is the rapid vaporization of a liquid, which occurs when a liquid is heated to its boiling point, the temperature at which the vapour pressure of the liquid is equal to the pressure exerted on the liquid by the surrounding atmosphere. At sea level the boiling point of water is 100 °C or 212 °F but at higher altitudes it drops to correspond with decreasing atmospheric pressures.

Condensationnoun

the act of increasing the density of something

Condensationnoun

water which collects as droplets on a cold surface when humid air is in contact with it

‘the inside of the cab steamed up with condensation’;

Condensationnoun

the conversion of a vapour or gas to a liquid

‘the cloud is caused by condensation in the air’;

Condensationnoun

a reaction in which two molecules combine to form a larger molecule, producing a small molecule such as H₂O as a by-product.

Condensationnoun

the fusion of two or more images or ideas into a single composite or new image, as a primary process in unconscious thought exemplified in dreams.

Condensationnoun

a concise version of something, especially a text

‘a readable condensation of the recent literature’;

Condensation

Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from the gas phase into the liquid phase, and is the reverse of vaporization. The word most often refers to the water cycle.
