The critical temperature (T c)


The critical temperature (T c) and critical pressure (Pc) of CO2 are 30.98°C and 73atm respectively. Can CO2(g) be liquefied at 32°C and 80atm pressure?


CO2 gas cannot be liquefied at a temperature which is greater than its critical temperature i.e 30.98°C even by applying any pressure. So as the given temperature is

32°C by applying a pressure of 80atm the CO2 gas cannot be liquefied.
