# What is the critical specific volume of water?

### What is the critical specific volume of water?

The specific volume of water at the critical point is **0.003155 m3/kg**.

### What is critical point and triple point?

Critical Point – the point in temperature and pressure on a phase diagram where the liquid and gaseous phases of a substance merge together into a single phase. ... **Triple Point occurs when both the temperature and pressure of the three phases of the substance coexist in equilibrium**.

### What is formula of critical volume?

And critical volume is given as **VC=3b** that is volume at critical temperature and critical pressure.

### How do you find specific volume?

Formula for Specific Volume Specific **volume equals volume divided by mass**. Typically, volume is measured in cubic meters (m3), and mass is measured in kilograms. Specific volume is then calculated as volume divided by mass.

### What is the symbol of specific volume?

The specific volume of a substance is defined as the volume per unit mass. Typically specific volume uses the **symbol v**.

### What happens above critical point?

Above the critical point there **exists a state of matter that is continuously connected with (can be transformed without phase transition into) both the liquid and the gaseous state**. It is called supercritical fluid.

### What is fusion curve?

The fusion curve (blue) **represents when both solid and liquid are in equilibrium**. ... The three lines meet at the triple point, a specific temperature and pressure where all three phases are in equilibrium. The vaporization curve ends at the critical point.
