Condensation FAQs:

Q: Is condensation the change of the physical state of matter from gas phase into liquid phase?

A: Yes, and is the reverse of evaporation.

Q: Is condensation a crucial component of distillation?

A: Yes, and an important laboratory and industrial chemistry application.

Q: Is condensation a naturally occurring phenomenon?

A: Yes, and it can often be used to generate water in large quantities for human use.

Q: Is condensation initiated by the formation of atomic/molecular clusters of that species within its gaseous volume—like rain drop or snow flake formation within clouds—or at the contact between such gaseous phase and a liquid or solid surface?

A: Yes.

Q: Is condensation a critical step in many industrial processes?

A: Yes, such as power generation, water desalination, thermal management, refrigeration, and air conditioning.

Q: Is condensation the process of such phase conversion?

A: Yes.
