Textbook Problem

A fluorocarbon, CF4, has a critical temperature of −45.7 °C and a critical pressure of 37 atm. Are there any conditions under which this compound can be a liquid at room temperature? Explain briefly.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Any conditions other than critical pressure and critical temperature that CF4 can exist as a liquid at room temperature is to be identified

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 carbon monoxide is 45.2oC and critical pressure is 37atm.

Above 45.2oC C
