1. Full Question:

What is the temperature of a system in thermal equilibrium with another system made up of water and steam at one atmosphere of pressure?

A) 0°F

B) 273 K

C) 0 K

D) 100°C

E) 273°C

The correction Option is D) 100°C

Explanation:

The temperature above is referred to as the critical point.

it is the highest temperature and pressure at which water (which has three phases – liquid, solid, and gas) can exist in vapor/liquid equilibrium. If the temperature goes higher than 100 degrees celsius, it cannot remain is liquid form regardless of what the pressure is at that point.

There is also a condition under which water can exist in its three forms: that is

– Ice (solid)

– Liquid (fluid)

– Gas (vapor)

That state is called triple point. The conditions necessary for that to occur are:

• 273.1600 K (0.0100 °C; 32.0180 °F)  as temperature and
• 611.657 pascals (6.11657 mbar; 0.00603659 atm) as pressure
