A very strange curve on P-V diagram

  1. Apr 26, 2017 #1
    Hi. For a state of nitrogen in which temperature is higher than the critical temperature the state is presented on a different curve. I do not remember any curve for superheated region.

    It's an isotherm, for a temperature above the critical temperature.
