Problem

Choose the answer that correctly assigns the labels on the phase.

A) A = liquid, B = gas, C = solid, D = triple point

B) A = gas, B = liquid, C = solid, D = critical point

C) A = liquid, B = solid, C = gas, D = critical point

D) A = gas, B = solid, C = liquid, D = triple point

E) A = solid, B = gas, C = liquid, D = supercritical fluid

Solution

We’re being asked to label the phases on the given phase diagram. 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:

• Solid: can be found at high pressure and low temperature

• Liquid: can be found between the solid and gas regions 

• Gas: can be found at low pressure and high temperature

• Triple Point: the point at which all three phases are in equilibrium

• Critical Point: the point at which the liquid and gas phases coexist. The resulting phase is a supercritical fluid.
