Problem 9.18

Would you expect the nonbonding electron-pair domain in \(\mathrm{NH}_{3}\) to be greater or less in size than the corresponding one in \(\mathrm{PH}_{3}\)?

Text Transcription:

NH_3

PH_3

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 5) Shows the phase diagram of H2O. Because of the large range of pressures covered in the diagram, a logarithmic scale is used to represent pressure. The melting curve (blue line) of H2O is atypical, leaning slightly to the left with increasing pressure, indicating that for water the melting point decreases with increasing pressure. This unusual behavior occurs because water is among the very few substances whose liquid form is more compact than its solid form, as we learned in Section 11.2. If the pressure is held constant at 1 atm, it is possible to move from the solid to liquid to gaseous regions of the phase diagram by changing the temperature, as we expect from our everyday encounters with water. The triple point of H2O falls at a relatively low pressure, 0.00603 atm. Below this pressure, liquid water is not stable and ice sublimes to water vapor on heating. This property of water is used to “freeze-dry” foods and beverages. The food or beverage is frozen to a temperature below 0 °C. Next it is placed in a low-pressure chamber (below 0.00603 atm) and then warmed so that the water sublimes, leaving behind dehydrated food or beverage.
