Why do liquids change into vapors when heat is applied?

As more and more heat transfer into the liquid, the kinetic energy of the liquid atoms starts to increase, breaking free from that loose bond and creating vapors, where all sorts of atoms from that liquid now roam free within the atmosphere.

Solids have the lowest energy, liquids have higher energy, and gases have the highest energy. This energy is dependent on how fast these atoms/molecules move.

This is so because when a liquid reaches a set temperature its molecules are susceptible to evaporation. Thanks to the four states of matter and years of experiments.
