Thermodynamic Properties Phase Diagrams: Summary
Key points from this module:
- The examples in this module are for water, but similar behavior is observed for other molecules.
- Selecting the appropriate phase diagram can make understanding of behavior of single-component systems easier.
From studying this module, you should now be able to:
- Represent various processes (constant volume, constant pressure, constant enthalpy, constant entropy, constant temperature) for a single component on different phase diagrams.
