Condensation is the change of the physical state of aggregation or matter from gaseous phase into liquid phase.

Direct to solid[]

When the transition happens from the gaseous phase into the solid phase directly, bypassing the liquid phase the change is called deposition, which is the opposite of sublimation.

Other methods[]

Condensation commonly occurs when a vapor is cooled to its dew point, but the dewpoint can also be reached through compression. The condensed vapour is called a condensate, the laboratory or the industrial equipment used for condensation is called a Condenser.
