sublimation

listen to the pronunciation of sublimation
Englisch - Englisch
The transition of a substance from the solid phase directly to the vapor state such that it does not pass through the intermediate liquid phase
The transformation of an impulse into something socially constructive
{n} the act of expelling the finer parts of solid bodies by heat, sublimation of solids resembles the distillation of fluids
the term for the change of a solid directly to a vapor Evaporation is commonly used as a generic word meaning the change in state from either solid to gas, or liquid to gas
the transition of water directly from the solid state to the gaseous state, without passing through the liquid state; or vice versa
The transformation of a solid directly to a vapor without forming a liquid
the process by which a substance goes directly from the solid to the gaseous state without passing through the liquid state
The transition of a substance from the solid phase directly to the vapor state, or vice versa, without passing through the intermediate liquid phase
The direct vaporization of a sold by heating without passing through the liquid state
The act of heightening or improving; exaltation; elevation; purification
Chemical conversion of a solid substance directly into vapour by the means of heat without becoming liquid On cooling the substance re-solidifies
n the act of a solid changing directly into vapor without going through the liquid phase
The process of a solid (ice) changing directly into a gas (water vapor), or water vapor changing directly into ice, at the same temperature, without ever going through the liquid state (water) The opposite of crystallization
Process where ice changes into water vapor without first becoming liquid
When a substance changes directly from a solid state to a gaseous state without becoming liquid
The act or process of subliming, or the state or result of being sublimed
The transition of water from the solid phase (snow) directly to the vapor phase without melting
a change directly from the solid to the gaseous state without becoming liquid
The process in which ice changes directly to water vapor without melting
(chemistry) a change directly from the solid to the gaseous state without becoming liquid
The process whereby water in the form of ice changes directly to water vapor without passing through the intervening liquid state
A phase change of water directly from ice to water vapor without melting
In physics, the change of state of a substance from a solid to a gas without first becoming liquid. One example is the vaporization of frozen carbon dioxide, or dry ice, at ordinary atmospheric pressure and temperature. The phenomenon occurs at pressures and temperatures (both relatively low) where solid and vapour phases coexist in equilibrium. Preservation of food by freeze-drying involves sublimation of water from the food in a frozen state under vacuum
The process of passing from a solid state directly to a gaseous state
That which is sublimed; the product of a purifying process
the process whereby certain dyes change from solid to vapor and back to solid again by the application of heat
In U S meteorology, the phase change of water vapor in the air directly into ice or the chance of ice directly into water vapor Chemists, and sometimes meteorologists, refer to the vapor to solid phase change as "deposition "
(psychology) modifying the natural expression of an impulse or instinct (especially a sexual one) to one that is socially acceptable (chemistry) a change directly from the solid to the gaseous state without becoming liquid
{i} process in which a solid is transformed directly into a gas or a gas directly into a solid (Chemistry); redirection of instinctual energy into socially constructive channels (Psychoanalysis)
(psychology) modifying the natural expression of an impulse or instinct (especially a sexual one) to one that is socially acceptable
The conversion of a substance from its solid form directly to its gaseous form without the intervening liquid form Dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide) sublimates at normal room temperature The principle of sublimation allows water to be used as a coolant in a vacuum
The transition of a solid directly into the vapor phase
The change of a solid (such as ice) directly into a gaseous state (bypassing the liquid state) This happens in the vacuum of space with comets, as the heating effects of solar radiation cause ices in comets to "steam off" as gasses into space The ice molecules present in the nucleus actually break up (or dissociate) into smaller atoms and molecules after leaving the nucleus in gas form
A process in which a solid goes directly to the gaseous state without passing through an intermediate liquid state
sublimation energy
The increase in internal energy of a unit mass of solid when it undergoes sublimation at constant temperature and pressure
sublimate
To modify the natural expression of a sexual or primitive instinct in a socially acceptable manner; to divert the energy of such an instinct into some acceptable activity
sublimate
To purify or refine a substance through such a change of state
sublimate
{n} muriate of mercury, or mercury and muriatic acid combined
sublimate
{v} to refine solid substances by heat
heat of sublimation
heat absorbed by a unit mass of material when it changes from a solid to a gaseous state
sublimate
To refine and exalt; to heighten; to elevate
sublimate
Brought into a state of vapor by heat, and again condensed as a solid
sublimate
{i} product created by means of chemical sublimation
sublimate
made pure
sublimate
To raise to a place of honor
sublimate
remove impurities from, increase the concentration of, and separate through the process of distillation; "purify the water"
sublimate
vaporize and then condense right back again
sublimate
the product of vaporization of a solid direct energy or urges into useful activities
sublimate
To change state from a solid to a gas (or from a gas to a solid) without passing through the liquid state (transitive or intransitive)
sublimate
(psychoanalysis) To modify the natural expression of a sexual or primitive instinct in a socially acceptable manner; to divert the energy of such an instinct into some acceptable activity
sublimate
A product obtained by sublimation; hence, also, a purified product so obtained
sublimate
If you sublimate a strong desire or feeling, you express it in a way that is socially acceptable. He could try to sublimate the problem by writing, in detail, about it. to use the energy that comes from sexual feelings to do something, such as work or art, that is more acceptable to your society (past participle of sublimare , from sublimis; SUBLIME)
sublimate
make more subtle or refined
sublimate
To bring by heat into the state of vapor, which, on cooling, returns again to the solid state; as, to sublimate sulphur or camphor
sublimate
{f} transform a solid directly into a gas or a gas directly into a solid (Chemistry); redirect instinctual energy into socially constructive channels (Psychoanalysis)
