70 oC is above the critical temperature of CO2. Once CO2 is isothermally compressed at this temperature it would not liquefy irrespective of how high the pressure is but at very high pressures CO2 will not behave as an ideal gas.
At -65 oC under 10 atm pressure CO2 is in the solid phase. At room temperature (27 oC) under 10 atm pressure CO2 is in the vapour phase. At 10 atm pressure, CO2 can exist in all three phases depending upon the temperature. Therefore as CO2 is heated from -65 oC to room temperature at a constant pressure of 10 atm it goes from the solid phase to liquid phase and then ultimately it goes into the...
At room temperature (27 oC) and 4 atm pressure CO2 exits in the vapour phase. The pressure 4 atm is less than the pressure at the triple point and therefore points corresponding to all temperatures and this pressure lie in the solid and vapour region. Once we start compressing CO2 from room temperature at this constant pressure CO2 turns from vapour to solid directly without going through the...
The temperature -60 oC lies to the left of the triple point of water i.e. in the region of solid and vapour phases. Once we start compressing CO2 at this temperature starting from 1 atm pressure it will directly convert into solid without going through the liquid phase.
CO2 is liquid at 15 oC under 56 atm pressure as the point corresponding to this condition lies in the liquid region in the given P-T phase diagram of carbon dioxide.
CO2 is solid at -60 oC under 10 atm pressure as the point corresponding to this condition lies in the solid region in the given P-T phase diagram of carbon dioxide.
CO2 is vapour at -70 oC under 1 atm pressure as the point corresponding to this condition lies in vapour region in the given P-T phase diagram of carbon dioxide.
The critical temperature and pressure for CO2 are 31.1 oC and 73.0 atm respectively. If the temperature exceeds this critical value of temperature CO2 would not liquefy no matter how high the pressure is.
Both fusion and boiling point of CO2 decrease with decrease in pressure. This we can see from the solid lines in the P-T phase diagram of CO2.
At the triple point temperature of -56.6 oC and pressure 5.11 atm the solid, liquid and vapour phases of    co-exist in equilibrium.
