difference between sublimate and sublime

Sublimate is the solid deposit on the upper surface of the container during the sublimation of any compound.

When a solid changes directly to gas (or vice versa) it is known as sublimation and the solid is said to sublime. So sublimation is a phenomenon, while the substance which changes state directly from solid to gas (or vice-versa) is said to sublime.
