Boiling

  • Boiling and evaporation are both changes of state that involve a liquid changing to a gas

  • Boiling happens when a liquid is heated to its boiling point

Evaporation

  • Evaporation can happen at temperatures lower than the liquids boiling point

  • More energetic particles that are near the surface of the liquid can escape and become gas particles
