What is Vapour

For those of you that never really paid attention to science lessons at school then the notion of vaporizer making a gas versus the idea of simply setting fire to a substance needs to be explained. This video outlines the theory known as particle theory, which is simply the energy and state changes of substance – the dream for any user of a vaporizer is to achieve sublimation which only occurs if the temperature and pressure are exactly where you would like them to be.

This is not often the way things work out and it is far more likely that within the heating dish of a vaporizer the solid is vaporizing via the liquid phase.
