Answer:

Does it not go from a condensed phase to a gaseous phase?

Explanation:

The which we can represent by the equilibrium..

#H_2O(l) rightleftharpoonsH_2O(g)#

Note that at ALL temperatures both WATER and ICE express a vapour pressure, the which for water we call it the
#"saturated vapour pressure"#, a function of temperature. #P_"SVP"-=23.8*mm*Hg# at #298*K#. What is #P_"SVP"# at #373.15*K#?

And of course as water vaporizes it expresses a much GREATER volume.
