(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. What is the pressure needed to increase the melting temperature by 20 centigrade degrees?

Given: Molar Volume (solid) at normal melting temp is 18.92 cm^3

Given: Molar Volume (liquid) at normal melting temp is 19.47 cm^3

2. Relevant equations

delta H (s>l) = T(melting point)* delta S(s>l)

3. The attempt at a solution

Not sure how I can even come up with an equation. I know I can calculate the change in volume with the molar volumes. The equation listed doesn't seem to help any either, anyone have an equation that works?

dP/dT = L/TdeltaV can't be used since I dont know latent heat...

Please help~
