Boiling point the temperature at which a material changes from a liquid to a gas.
Condensation the change of state from a gas to a liquid
energy movement of atoms, molecules, compounds, or matter. Energy comes in many forms including heat, kinetic, potential, mechanical or electrical.
evaporation the change of state from a liquid to a gas only at the surface.
freedom of movement the way molecules in a substance move around each other, or away from each other

liquid the state of matter that has a definite volume but not a definite shape.
Melt the change of state in which a solid becomes a liquid by adding heat
Melting point The temperature at which a substance melts.
