Vaporization vs. Melting
Pyrokinesis is defined as the psychokinetic ability to influence propelling charged particles to high speeds, typically electrons because of their light weight, via an experients own electrical fields or through the remote influence of similar fields.
Experients act as low energy particle accelerators whereby increasing the temperature of systems, or objects, that are not in thermodynamic equilibrium.
Reported limitations include increasing the temperatures of substances or systems in regards to solid verses fluid influence. In other words, experients of pyrokinetic phenomena in which can influence fluids (liquids and gases) report limitations when attempting the melting or fusion of solids.
This limitation presents itself during the process of phase transition. Vaporization, or boiling, is a type of phase transition, which typically occurs when a liquid is heated to its boiling point.
Melting, or fusion, is a physical process that results in the phase transition of a substance from a solid to a liquid. This form of phase change is most commonly reported by experients of pyrokinetic phenomena in regards to electronic circuits more so than other substances or objects.
