Numerical values for the coefficients in Eqs (5.23S) and (5.23L) for water have been inserted. This equation is solved for Ttp as a function of p and the corresponding prP calculated from either Eq (5.23S) or Eq (5.23L). The results are shown in Fig. 5.6 The vapor-liquid and vapor-solid lines are drawn for inert-gas pressures of 0 and 100 atm. At 500 atm, the triple-point temperature has decreased by ~ 4 K and the triple-point pressure has increased by ~ 12%2.

Do we really want the one thing that gives us its resources unconditionally to suffer even more than it is suffering now? Nature, is a part of our being from the earliest human days. We respect Nature and it gives us its bounty, but in the recent past greedy money hungry corporations have made us all so destructive, so wasteful.
