Phase Diagrams of Water

Learn more about water phase diagrams using these hands-on phase diagrams of water that we have collected for you! Phase diagram is a graphical representation of the physical states of a substance under different conditions of temperature and pressure. A typical phase diagram has pressure on the y-axis and temperature on the x-axis. Follow these diagrams to study more about phase diagram and we’ll start by giving you the first water phase diagram below.

Phase diagrams show the preferred physical states of matter at different temperatures and pressure. Within each phase, the material is uniform with respect to its chemical composition and physical state. The phase diagram of water is, however, complex. The phase diagram for water is shown in the figure below.

The water phase diagram has a triple point corresponding to the single temperature and pressure at which solid, liquid, and gaseous water can coexist in a stable equilibrium (273.16 K and a partial vapor pressure of611.657 Pa). In water’s diagram, the slope of the line between the solid and liquid states is negative rather than positive. The reason is that water is an unusual substance in that its solid state is less dense than the liquid state. Ice floats in liquid water. Therefore, a pressure change has the opposite effect on those two phases.
