In this problem, we are asked which of the three red points would SO2(g) most closely approach ideal-gas behavior.
We can use the phase diagram to answer the given questions.
Recall that a phase diagram shows the transition of matter between solid, liquid, and gas phases as temperature and pressure changes.
In a phase diagram, the different phases can be identified by their location:
The given phase diagram is:
The phase diagram for SO2 is shown here.
At which of the three points marked in red does SO2(g) most closely approach ideal-gas behavior?
