Scientific literature in recent years reveals a great deal of interest, both theoretical and experimental, in the study of the shape of the P-V-T surface in the critical region. Many of the theoretical and survey articles have, of necessity, been based upon results of experimental work which were not appropriate for application to the critical region. Conventional P-V-T measurements generally fall into this category. Consider the problems involved in deriving the coexistence boundary from P-V-T data.
