Homework Help: Connection between increase in pressure and melting point

  1. Jun 25, 2015 #1
    Hey guys
    What's the connection between an increase in pressure and the melting point of ice? Ice contracts as it melts so does an increase in pressure reduce or increase the melting point?

    Look at a p-T diagram for water, concentrate on the fusion curve.
