Title: Water Phase Changes.
Caption: This animation depicts several processes and aspects of the phase changes of water. One part of the animation shows the relationship of water molecules to each other in the solid, liquid, and gaseous phases. Another part details how latent heat relates to phase changes. Another part illustrates important concepts involved with melting and freezing, vaporization and condensation, and sublimation and deposition. The final part illustrates the polarity of the water molecule and how hydrogen bonds form between water molecules.
Keywords: water, hydrogen bonds, latent heat, melting, freezing, vaporization, evaporation, condensation, sublimation, deposition
