Sublimation is the process of converting solid directly into gas.
The whole process can be divided into two parts
1. Melting of solid into liquid (Fusion)
2. Vaporization of liquid o the gas (Vaporization)

Now, according to the Hess’s Law, if a chemical change takes place by several different routes, the overall enthalpy change is the same, regardless of the route by which the chemical change occurs.
Thus enthalpy of sublimation = enthalpy of fusion +enthalpy of vapourizatio
