State the effect of increase of pressure on the melting point of ice?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The effect of pressure on the melting point of ice can be explained by le chatelier’s principle which states that any change in the equilibrium of the system will cause the new system to counteract the  applied change.

Step 2

­­So,when we increase the pressure exerted on the ice , the ice –water sys...
