This is the phase transition between a liquid and a gas; whereas the reverse transition is #"condensation"#. Usually all liquids have an equilibrium vapour pressure, which is an measurement of the evaporation of the liquid. When the vapour pressure of the liquid is #1*atm#, the #"normal boiling point"# is described; i.e. the vaour pressure of the lquid is equal to the ambient pressure, and bubbles of vapour form directly in the liquid.
