    Why the melting point of water is lowered with rise of pressure? Give an example where melting point is increased with rise in pressure ?

    Ice on melting decreases in volume.12 cc of ice on melting gives 11 c of water. That means the molecular distance decreases on melting. Increase of pressure creates the same effect thus lower latent heat energy is required for bringing the molecules closer. So melting point is lowered with increase in pressure.
