Nelson-Obert chart, courtesy San Diego State University. When Tr = 1.00, the temperature is at the critical point, and the compressibility decreases rapidly with increasing pressure. This is the incompressibility of liquids. But above the critical pressure (Pr = 1.00), the plasma is more compressible than predicted by the ideal gas laws, especially at the lower temperatures.
