This Flash animation compares the stages of heating a liquid (H20) to the vapor stage in different pressures including normal surface pressure and super critical pressure. The demo includes a temperature vs. specific volume chart for each pressure and shows the difference between boiling at surface pressure versus the transition of fluid to vapor at supercritical pressure.
See the Engineering/Physical Sciences MTO page for additional modules on enginnering.
