We’re being asked to determine the name of the part of the phase diagram where all phases can co-exist (point A in the graph below).
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 location that indicates conditions under which all phases can co-exist (point A in the graph below) is called
A) triple point.
B) critical point.
C) phase boundary.
D) phase diagram.
