The passages between the three physical states (solid, liquid and gaseous) are called physical state changes. Look at the following diagram and then read the explanations of each of these changes. Have you ever seen how on a hot day a piece of ice melts right out of the freezer? In this case, the solid state water quickly changes to the liquid state.
