Supercritical Fluids

What’s the difference between a vapour and a gas?

Supercritical “steam” is used in some electrical power generation plants to improve efficiency, and the supercritical water reactor is considered a promising technology for fourth generation nuclear fission power plants, promising to increase thermal efficiency of the reactor/turbine system from 33% for current pressurised light water reactors to as much as 45%.


Thermodynamics is cool.

Benz invented the vehicle many rake for granted today-- and he certainly had a keen understanding of pressure, volume, and temperature relations.

Can you guess the equation/law I am referring to?
