How is magma turned into lava?

While melted rock is still under earth's surface,its called magma.It,s under great pressure so it,s thick like putty.When this material comes though the vent of the volcano and into open air it is no longer under pressure and become,s much thinner.It can flow like liquid.Then we call it lava.
