What the difference between vaporization and evaporation?

    I googled it and what I found was: "Vaporization is a transitional phase of an element or compound from a solid phase or liquid phase to a gas phase while evaporation is a type of vaporization wherein the transition from a liquid phase to a gas phase takes place below the boiling temperature at a given pressure, and it occurs on the surface."

    But my science teacher always told us they were both pretty much the same thing: liquid to gas. There isn't a major difference and if you see one of the words on a test just remember - liquid to gas!
