All of these may be explained by an appreciation of the energy overcoming the forces holding the particles together or becoming insufficient to keep them apart.
fusion, melting: solid to liquid phase change
boiling, vaporization: liquid to gas phase change
**evaporation: liquid to gas phase change of the particles on the outer surface only
solidification, freezing: liquid to solid phase change
condensation: gas to liquid phase change
sublimation: Solid to gas phase change
deposition: gas to solid
