Solution: The phase diagram for sulfur is shown below. The rhombic and monoclinic phases are two solid phases with different structures .Below what pressure will solid sulfur sublime?

Problem

The phase diagram for sulfur is shown below. The rhombic and monoclinic phases are two solid phases with different structures A graph of temperature versus pressure. It contains five line segments. The first segment begins near the origin, and moves with upward concavity to a point at 96 degrees celcius and .0043 millimeters of mercury. From there a linear segment extends upward with a gentle slope to the top of the graph. The area to the left of this line above the first is labled rhombic. From the first labled point another line with positive concavity extends to another point labled 119 degrees celcius, .027 millimeters of mercury. From this second point another line with a large positive slope extends upward to the top of the graph. The area to the left of this line, in between the other upward line is labled monoclinic. The area the right of this line, above a third segment extending from the second labled point, is labled liquid. The area below the three curved segments is labled vapor.  .

Below what pressure will solid sulfur sublime?
