The freezing of water at 0C can be represented as follows: H2O(l) <----> H2O(s) The density of liquid water is 1.00 g/cm3. The density of ice is 0.92 g/cm3. In 3-4 sentences explain why applying pressure causes ice to melt.

    When applying pressure, would that increase or decrease the volume?

    Increase?

    Hm, no, when you squeeze something, it gets smaller (volume goes down)

    I have trouble putting everything together in chemistry sorry.. But I'm trying.

    It's cool :-) But does that make sense?

    Cool, and do you think squeezing it would change the mass?

    ... Yeah. I don't know if that's wrong but..

    Ok, that's fair. The only way it could change the mass would be if some dropped (or dripped) out. Mass doesn't change when pressure is applied.

    So, mass stays the same, but volume goes down. What would that do to the density?

    Oh okay... Got that. Soooo the density would increase?

    And liquid water's density is larger than ice's.
