# Ammonia - Properties at Gas-Liquid Equilibrium Conditions

At standard conditions, ammonia is a gas. However, at low temperature and/or high pressures the gas becomes a liquid, and at more extreme conditions, a solid. The ammonia phase diagram shows the phase behavior with changes in temperature and pressure. The curve between the triple point and the critical point shows the ammonia boiling point with changes in pressure.

Critical point : The end point of the pressure-temperature curve that designates conditions under which a liquid and its vapor can coexist. At higher temperatures, the gas cannot be liquefied by pressure alone. At the critical point, defined by the critical temperature T c and the critical pressure P c , phase boundaries vanish.
Critical temperature of ammonia:           405.56 K =132.41 °C = 270.34 °F
Critical pressure of ammonia:                112.08 atm = 113.41 bar = 11.357 MPa (MN/m2) = 1647.2 psi (=lbf /in2)

Triple point : The temperature and pressure at which the three phases (gas, liquid, and solid) of a substance coexist in thermodynamic equilibrium
Triple point pressure of ammonia:         0.0601 atm = 0.0609 bar = 6090 Pa = 0.8832 psi (=lbf /in2)
Triple point temperature of ammonia:    195.5 K = -77.65 °C = -107.77 °F

The figures below show the changes in thermophysical properties along the ammonia boiling and condensation curves: Density , viscosity , heat capacity , thermal conductivity .

Tabulated values given in SI and imperial units, and unit converters are given below the figures.
