Where two lines intersect we have a triple-point. A critical point is a point where a phase boundary disappears. At temperatures above the critical point the liquid and vapor phases are indistinguishable,​ we call this a supercritical fluid, or more simply a gas. The dotted line shows the behavior of water, which is anomalous (ie. it expands upon freezing). ​ The lines represent conditions where 2 phases co-exist, referred to as a phase boundary.
