Chemical potential interpretation for QCD phase diagram

The phase diagram of QCD is not known/understood completely: neither from first principles nor experimentally. We have limited knowledge from collider experiment, neutron star mergers and theory. Both ...

Can the water remain in the vapor gas form at zero Kelvin (0K) temperature? (when the pressure is low enough or under other conditions)

According to the second phase diagram in Kelvin to near 0K, it seems the answer is no. Then I think you must be misreading the diagram, as I don't see any section where the vapor pressure is ...

Can the water remain in the vapor gas form at zero Kelvin (0K) temperature? (when the pressure is low enough or under other conditions)

If the pressure is very low, the molecules might be simply too far from each other to form bonds and reduce their energy via binding. This means, we will just have a bunch of molecules at large ...

Equilibrium temperature and phase changes

The simplest way to handle this, or even more complex combinations, is to proceed in two steps: Pick a temperature and fraction solid/liquid for the final composition. This choice will almost ...
