Homework Help: Thermodynamics Question- Melting Temp

  1. Oct 28, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    For a protein denaturation the entropy change is 2.31J/Kmol at P = 1.00 atm and at the melting temperature T=338K. Calculate the melting temperature at a pressure of P= 1.00x10^3 atm if the heat capacity ∆Cp,m= 7.98J/Kmol and if ∆Vm=3.10mL/mol.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I am completey stuck. If someone could give me a tip on how to start, maybe I can get the ball rolling and solve this problem.
