Significance of triple point : Triple point is a characteristic physical property of a pure substance. Generally, the triple point marks the lowest temperature at which the liquid can exist. As for water system, the solid‐liquid phase boundary slopes in the opposite direction so the triple point criteria is not applicable with respect to temperature. But with respect to pressure, a liquid can exist as a stable phase if the pressure is above that of the triple point.
