Question

a. A sample of water vapor in an enclosed cylinder has an initial pressure of 500 Pa at an initial temperature of 0.01C-0.01^{\circ} \mathrm{C}. A piston squeezes the sample smaller and smaller, without limit. Describe what happens to the water as the squeezing progresses. b. Repeat part a if the initial temperature is 0.03C0.03^{\circ} \mathrm{C} warmer

As the piston squeezes the sample the pressure increases.

The initial pressure is less than 0.006atm0.006 \mathrm{a}\mathrm{t}\mathrm{m}.

In chapter 15 we defined 1atm as 101,300 Pa.

So $500\displaystyle P\mathrm{P}a\mathrm{a}\cdot1atm101,300Pa\frac{1atm}{101,300Pa}=0.005 atm.

$ We now refer to the phase diagram in Figure 16.4.
