We have used constant-volume pressure measurements over the entire range of molar volumes of bcc solid 3He, 20>v>24 cm3/mole, to determine the zero-temperature critical field H c1 and the pressure discontinuity ΔP(H c1) between the two antiferromagnetically ordered phases. The upper critical field H c2 has been determined for 20>v>21.75 cm3/mole. The 3He was cooled by direct (two-stage) adiabatic demagnetization from T≈100 µK and H=2.5 T where its entropy S≈0. We find the Gruneisen parameters for H c2 and ΔP to be larger than in previous work, but still smaller than for H c2 and other physical quantities such as the Neel temperature T N and e 1/2 2, where e 2 is the coefficient of the second-order term in the free energy of the paramagnetic phase. These resugts are significant for testing the mugtiple-exchange model for solid 3He.
