Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Gas to liquid is condensation (like on the side of your lemonaide glass!) Deposition skips liquid (who needs 'em?) and is a change from gas to solid.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Desublimation is another term for deposition. I guess there is still some ambiguity here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's debatable. I essentially believe the answer is deposition, but thank you @Harkirat, for your insight.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Even in science sometimes they leave ambiguities....I feel "reverse sublimation" should be the correct name that they should coin.....☺
