Changing the State of Matter

Changing the State of Water

This week we have been changing the state of water.

First we started with ice, water in a solid state.

We heated the water to make it evaporate into steam, this is water in a gas state.

Then we condensated the steam (a gas) catching it with a cold lid , turning it back to water (a liquid).

We froze the water to make ice (a solid) once more.
