ABSTRACT
Equations describing a change in the thermodynamic parameters of a first-order phase transition in para- and diamagnetic substances under the action of a homogeneous magnetic field are derived. It is shown that the magnetic field effect on the phase transition parameters is negligibly small in the regions of the phase diagram where the P-T curves vary monotonically. However, the applied magnetic field may significantly change the T[sub Æ’ and P[sub Æ’] values in the regions where either P[sub Æ’](T) or T[sub Æ’](P) curves exhibit extrema. Substances in which this effect can be observed are indicated.
