Remember phase diagrams, the thing which kept us tracing the lines and finding out what happens when temperature is increased or pressure is decreased? Don’t you think they were a little boring and dull?
As far as I am considered , I hated them! When I was studying Thermodynamics in my second year where Prof P. A. Deshpande ( Department of Chemical Engineering, IIT Kharagpur) took our class and tried his level best to impart some knowledge to my head. But being the most amazing student ever, I never bothered to study and when the exams approached I faced a massive road block to good grades. It was this, the phase diagrams where I couldn’t understand and visualize the different graphs and how to make sense of them? Now that I have graduated successfully I have time to handle this problem in a different manner. So I’ve decided to make a 3D models of P-V-T Phase Diagrams. Hope they help you in your school or college or any other problem you have.
Now taking inspiration from the above figure I have converted it into a 3D model, try it out and let me know if it helps or not.
To understand this diagram there are already a number of good resources available on internet but the one I trust is Khan Academy. You can the video here:
