Qualitative and Quantitative Aspects of Phase Transitions in Water

This Demonstration shows both the qualitative and quantitative behavior of phase changes in water. Use the sliders to vary the pressure and temperature and see the black point on the phase diagram move between regions. The lines separating each region are determined by the Clausius–Clapeyron equation. The beaker shows the physical states present—solid, liquid and gas—represented by different colors.
