The isochoric-isothermal potentials are constructed for white tin SnΒ and two high-pressure phases of this metal, Snγ and SnΣ. Based on these and previously obtained similar data for tin melt Snl, a phase diagram of tin is constructed in the ranges of pressure from zero to 120 GPa and temperature from 300 to 7000 K; the behavior of the shock adiabat of tin is then treated in the vicinity of its intersection with the obtained equilibrium lines of four phases.
