Thermodynamics problem

  1. Feb 3, 2008 #1
    The heat of melting of ice at 1 atm and 0 degree c is +5.9176kj/mol. The density of ice under these conditions is 0.917g/cm^3 and the density fo water is 0.9998g/cm^3

    What will the melting point be at 10 atm? Derive necessary equations and make necessary asumptions.

    DeltaH and deltaS can be easily calculated, but i was thinking that dp/dt=(s2-s1)/(v2-v1). however i don't know if the formula is correct and how to apply to this problem. Thank you.

    This is a good start. Is there a relationship between s, h, and Tm, so that you can express [itex]\Delta s[/itex] in terms of [itex]\Delta h[/itex]?
