The water-gas phase transition is said to be similar to the ferromagnetic-paramagnetic phase transition (same set of critical exponents = same universality class). In the former case the order ...
I am trying to answer this question: What is the pressure inside a sealed container with liquid nitrogen at room temperature? Can you help me find a good online reference for phase diagrams. I am ...
Consider QCD with a single generation of massless quarks (u, d). This is probably the simplest variant of QCD which bears some relation to the real world. The theory has the following exact global ...
I've look into the hydrogen state diagram, and it seems that it can be frozen under pressure. Question: Does this mean that hydrogen cannot be kept frozen in a vacuum chamber?
If you take a container of great strength, fill it to the brim with liquid nitrogen, seal the container, and heat it to room temperature. What will the pressure be inside? Bonus: The same with ...
There exists this famous idea that if all floating icebergs melt, water level will stay the same (because the water replaced by ice is the volume of the melted ice). Now, Is this always so, if you ...
