vapour +‎ -ization

Examples

  • In the process of condensation -- indeed, in the steps which precede the formation of rain and snow -- there is often more or less trace of electrical action; in fact, a part of the energy which was involved in the vapourization of water, on its condensation, even on the dust motes appears to be converted into electrical action, which probably operates in part to keep the little aggregates of water asunder.
