Phase Diagrams

Phase DIagrams

A phase diagram shows the relationship between: temperature, pressure, and the three phases of matter
A single homogeneous physical state is referred to as A Phase
The phase change that results from a solid going directly into the gaseous phase is: sublimation
On a phase diagram, the intersection of the solid, liquid, and gaseous lines is known as the ? triple point
On a phase diagram, the temperature and pressure at which the phase boundary between the liquid and gas ceases to exist is called the ? critical point
Beyond the critical point, the phase of the substance is referred to as a ? supercritical fluid
Above the critical temperature, it is impossible to ? apply enough pressure to condense the gas to a liquid
The lines on a phase diagram represent the temperatures and pressures of ? two phases of the substance are present
On a phase diagram, temperature and pressure can either be varied or held constant. These factors are referred to as ? independent variables
When a substance goes from a solid to a liquid phase, this phase change is known as ? melting
When a substance goes from a liquid to a solid phase, this phase change is known as ? freezing
The phase change that results from a gas going directly into the solid phase is: deposition

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then tap the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, tap the green Know box. Otherwise, tap the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, tap "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just tap on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
