Textbook Problem

Methane (CH4) cannot be liquefied at room temperature, no matter how high the pressure. Propane (C3H8), another simple hydrocarbon, has a critical pressure of 42 atm and a critical temperature of 96.7 °C. Can this compound be liquefied at room temperature?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Propane is whether liquefied at or above room temperature should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Critical Temperature: It is temperature above which the vapor cannot be converted to liquid by applying pressure alone

The interface between the liquid and vapor disappears when a high temperature and pressure is reached is called critical temperature.Tc and corresponding pressure Pc

Explanation

The critical temperature of propane is 96.7K and critical pressure is 42atm.
