1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I need to calculate the temperature and pressure at the triple point. natural log of pressure of the liquid/solid: lnp(solid)= 29.411(5893.5K/T) lnp(liquid)=22.254(3479.9K/T). The compound is uranium hexafluoride, MW= 352.02. I do not believe the actual molecule matters to much, just the weight. pressure is in Pa. 2. Relevant equations lnp(solid)= 29.411(5893.5K/T) lnp(liquid)=22.254(3479.9K/T) 3. The attempt at a solution 3. The attempt at a solution I used P= 1 atm >101.325kPa, and using the lnp(solid) equation determined a temperature. I then used that same temp in the lnp(liquid) to solve the other lnp equation. It did not go well. I am unsure on how to relate these two equations to the triple point. I should be able to grind through the math when I know how to relate it all.
