Liquid ammonia in a state in which adding heat at constant pressure causes the liquid to vaporize at constant temperature, and in which removing heat at constant pressure causes the temperature of the liquid to drop immediately.
Ammonia vapor in a state in which adding heat at constant pressure causes an immediate temperature rise (superheating) and in which removing heat at constant pressure starts immediate condensation at constant temperature.
