Solution: Consider the phase diagram shown below .Identify the phase present at points a.

Problem

Consider the phase diagram shown below The diagram depicts temperature versus pressure. A line begins near the origin, and increases with upward concavity to a point g. From point g a vertical line extends upward to the top of the graph, passing through point e. Point a lies to the left of this vertical line and the y axis, above the upward slpoing line. A second upward sloping line starts at point g, passes through point f, and has more concavity then the first. The line ends at the point representing the critical temperature and pressure. Point b lies above this second line to the right of the first vertical line. From the critical point, two vertical lines extend horizontally and vertically to the ends of the graph in each direction. Within this region lies point d. Point c lies above the x axis, and below the upward sloping lines.   .
