Benzene has a melting point of 5.53 °C and a boiling point of 80.09 °C at atmospheric pressure. Its density is0.8787 g>cm3 when liquid and 0.899 g>cm3 when solid; it has Tc = 289.01 °C, Pc = 48.34 atm, Tt = 5.52 °C, and Pt = 0.0473 atm. Starting from a point at 200 K and
66.5 atm, trace the following path on a phase diagram. (1) First, increase T to 585 K while keeping P constant.
(2) Next, decrease P to 38.5 atm while keeping T constant.
(3) Then, decrease T to 278.66 K while keeping P constant.
(4) Finally, decrease P to 0.0025 atm while keeping T
What is your starting phase, and what is your final phase?
