Water may be solid, liquid and gaseous. We investigate in this chapter the liquid 4 vapor phase change. Compared to the solid liquid phase change, there is a major 5 difference: the phase change temperature depends on a parameter, for instance on 6 the pressure. It is well known that water boils at the Mont Blanc summit at a lower 7 temperature than at sea level.
