a: sublimation ~
b: dry ice at room temerature


Sublimation in the process of a solid transforming into a gas with no transition to a liquid state during the process. The classic example that just about everyone has seen is the change in dry ice when it is held at room temperature for an extend period of time. At room temperature and atmospheric pressure, Carbon dioxide can not be in a liquid state, and therefore will change from solid to liquid with no step in the interim.
