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 34 sentences explain why applying pressure causes ice to melt.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When applying pressure, would that increase or decrease the volume?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hm, no, when you squeeze something, it gets smaller (volume goes down)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Cool, and do you think squeezing it would change the mass?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0... Yeah. I don't know if that's wrong but..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, mass stays the same, but volume goes down. What would that do to the density?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh okay... Got that. Soooo the density would increase?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And liquid water's density is larger than ice's.
