If you’re cooking your dinner and want to know what the water phase is at 100°C, that’s an easy question. The answer is steam! What is the Water Phase at 100°C? -When water is heated to 100 degrees Celsius, it turns into steam. This phase change occurs because of a lack of energy needed for liquid molecules to maintain their cohesive forces. The molecules in liquids are flexible and can move around each other freely; they need more energy to break free from these bonds than those found in gases. When you heat up a substance like water, its kinetic motion increases as well (i.e., hotter substances have faster moving particles). In this case, the increased kinetic motion allows some atoms or molecules on the surface of one molecule escape while another molecule takes its place–this process causes what we call boiling! And when that happens, your food will be cooked in minutes! -What’s the difference between boiling and vaporizing? When a liquid boils, it starts to evaporate into steam. As more of the liquid turns into steam, bubbles start forming on the surface of the material (i.e., water). These bubbles are what we call “bubbles”–the ones you see rising from boiling pots and pans when cooking your dinner! You can also tell if something is boiled by listening for that familiar sound as well: all those little bubbles popping has got to make some noise; so listen closely next time you’re heating up some soup or pasta sauce. If 100 °C seems really hot right now, rest assured that there will come a day where it doesn’t seem too bad
