Farsideology: Water in Hell
The critical temperature of water is that temperature beyond which the liquid phase of water cannot exist, no matter how much pressure is placed on it. Water has a critical temperature of 374 C or 647 K. This is the red dot on the right side of the Graph. Source
Phase 1 – If the atmospheric pressure found in Hell is low, water can only exist in the vapor phase. (below the red dot.)
Phase 2 – If the atmospheric pressure of Hell is in the intermediate range, water is a supercritical fluid which is neither the liquid or vapor phase. (to the right of the red dot but above the vapor region -- the light brown square region)
Phase 3 -- If high pressures exist in Hell, water must be in a solid phase -- ICE-VII or Hot Ice ! The solid phase of water is called ice. In our normal daily experiences, ice is cold, but at high pressures and high temperatures ice can be very hot such as in Region VII of Diagram and above the supercritical region.
