This given phase diagram is:

A phase diagram for neon. The x-axis is temperature in Kelvin, ranging from 0 to 100 with intervals of 20. The y axis is pressure in atmospheres, ranging from 10 to the negative thee to 10 to the positive three. The line separating the solid and gas starts at (15, 10^-3), runs through (18, 10^-2), (22, 10^-1), and ends at (24, 0.4). The line separating the solid and liquid is vertical starting at (24, 0.4) running through (24, 10^3). The curve separating the gas and liquid starts at (24, 0.4) and runs through (36, 10), ending at (44, 27). There is a vertical line separating the liquid and supercritical fluid starting at (44, 27) and running through (44, 10^3). There is a horizontal line separating the gas from the supercritical fluid starting at (44, 27) and running through (100, 27).
