Crystal (Solid) Structure

Crystal Structure (overheads)

Types of Solids

Phase Diagrams

Phase diagrams enable us to predict the behavior of a substance under different conditions of temperature and pressure. We will base our discussions on the behavior of two classic cases: water and carbon dioxide. (Note that phase diagrams strictly describe behavior only for pure substances, so they only hold exactly in closed laboratory systems. The main features do describe much of the contaminated world.)
