Can pure liquid water
exist under these conditions?
/ Data / Solve:
The state of a pure
substance that exists in a single phase is uniquely determined when 2 intensive
properties are known. Here, the values of 3 intensive
properties are specified. Any one of the three
could be considered too much, extraneous or redundant information. For
example, at the given T
& P, the density
of liquid water is 0.959 g/cm3, not 0.980 g/cm3. Similarly, liquid water at the given T & density exists at a pressure of about 0.471
atm, not 1 atm.
