Gases - Critical Temperatures and Pressures

Critical temperatures and pressures for some common gases - air, alcohol, ether, oxygen and more

  • A substance can not exist as a liquid above the Critical Temperature
  • The pressure of saturated vapor at critical temperature is the Critical Pressure
