i calculated the ansfer from an example and just want to verify if its correct.

dp/dt=(dfusH)/(t*dfusV) rearanged to dt=(dp*t*dfusV)/dfusH

where dfusV: change in molar volume on melting

okay, with the rearanged equation i changed 1000 atm to pascals = 101325 kPa dfusV was calculated to be 4.875399e-6 m3/mol

i came to a change in temperature of 15.54deg hence final freezing point is 11.8956degC.

could anyone plese help me and tell me if this is correct

also.. in teh equation t=273.15K was used.. could anyone please tell me why this was the case?

thanks

patrick.
