Boiling point

The boiling point of a substance is the temperature at which it can change its state from a liquid to a gas throughout the bulk of the liquid.

A liquid may change to a gas at temperatures below the boiling point through the process of evaporation.

Any change of state from a liquid to a gas at boiling point is considered vaporization.
