Problem

Below is a phase diagram for a substance. 

What is the name for point Z on the diagram? 

(A) boiling point. 

(B) critical point. 

(C) triple point. 

(D) normal boiling point. 

(E) melting point. 

Solution

Point Z is considered the critical (supercritical) point which is the condition where its hard to distinguish if
