Re: Triple Point


The triple point is a temperature and pressure at which the three phases of a specific element are in equilibrium. This is an approximation of the triple point graph of a water-like substance.

Five colors on Heather Gray.

I learned this in Chemistry?

can we see a closeup of the transition colors? I can't figure out how there are only five colors, with 4 main colors visible plus what appears to be 3 different in-between colors. I'm guessing that there are just 2, but I can't see it well enough to differentiate.

The five colors are black, aqua, purple, red, and yellow. The inbetween colors are just a bunch of short lines in one color over the other color. I figured lines would be just as admissible as the comic book-like dots. (are those called half tones?)

Re: Triple Point


I really love the coloring - the combination and overlapping of colors, with the black line drawing over top - but I'm afraid that all I see in this particular picture is a sitting butt.

Re: Triple Point


is it bad that when I first looked at this I thought it was an IUD?

Re: Triple Point


Wow, a lot of are people seeing weird things in this. Maybe I should have made a triple point graph of a non-water-like substance instead. In that case, the line between solid and liquid (purple and aqua) would point to the top right corner, rather than the top left.
