 Nothing happens to a liquid when it is heated until it reaches the boiling point. When the boiling point is reached molecules expand, the liquid starts to evaporate and turn to gas.

When it is heated at 100C , it evaporates simple as that !

It turns into gaseous state.

when a liquid is heated the particles gain more kinetic energy and start to vibrate vigourously slowly the force of attraction becomes smaller and it changes to gaseous state ,it changes to gaseous state when it reaches its boiling point.
