Sublimation and deposition

  1. 1. Sublimation and deposition <br />
  2. 2. What is Sublimation?<br />Sublimation is the process where a solid changes phase and turns directly into gas without passing through a liquid phase. <br />Sublimation, passing the liquid phrase<br />Solid<br />Solid<br />Liquid<br />Gas<br />Condensation<br />Melting<br />Freezing<br />Evaporation<br />
  3. 3. Purpose<br />What’s the ultimate purpose of Sublimation??<br />Sublimation is like distillation, which involves heating the compound at low pressure from one apparatus and condensing it in another to purify the compound. <br />Example of Sublimation Set-up<br />Example of Distillation set-up<br />
  4. 4. Examples<br />Carbon Dioxide is a common example of a chemical compound that sublimates at atmospheric pressure- dry ice at room temperature and one atmosphere temperature will turn into gas without becoming into a liquid.<br />Dry Ice reacting>><br />
  5. 5. Effects<br /> Sublimation also causes side effects such as Freezer Burn. Freezer Burn is a condition that occurs when frozen food has been damaged by dehydration, due to air reaching the food. It appears as grayish-brown . <br />When the constantly vibrating water molecules in the meats and vegetables stored in the freezer migrate to the surface, crystals of ice outside of the solid food are formed. The parts now deprived of moisture become dry and shriveled and look burned.<br />
  6. 6. Deposition<br />
  7. 7. What is Deposition?<br />Deposition is a process where a gas changes phase and turns directly in solid without passing through the liquid phase. It’s also the opposite of sublimation.<br />
  8. 8. Example<br />One extremely common example is snow that formed in clouds. Water vapor changes directly to ice without first becoming a liquid. <br />
