Answer

As temperature is provided to a liquid, its thermal energy is increased, and this increased thermal energy is enough to convert liquid molecules to a gaseous state.The temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid equals the surrounding pressure is called boiling point. When the boiling point is reached, then excess heat causes fast boiling.
