If the components of a system were Cl2, Br2, and I2, how could I describe this system under equilibrium conditions when the number of phases is at a maximum?
If there are 3 components, using the formula, F=M+2-P and solving for P under equilibrium conditions there would be a total of 5 phases.
Since these above components are all gases, and we know there are 5 phases, can I assume that 3 of the 5 phases will be Cl2 (gas), Br2 (gas), and I2 (gas).
For the other two phases, can I assume they consist of liquid iodine as it's commonly in the liquid phase, and cl2 (solid) as it's commonly in the liquid phase.
I'm not sure if this is correct.
