Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (MCQs)

When pressure is applied on the system, ice ⟷ water, then

  • A. Equilibrium can not be established
  • B. More ice will be formed
  • C. More water will be formed
  • D. Evaporation of water will take place
Answer: Option C.
Explanation: 
According to Le Chatelier’s principle the system will react in such a way that it minimizes the effect of deviation from equilibrium. Since, ice has the more volume than water equilibrium shifts towards water (less volume) side thereby, minimizing the effect of pressure and regaining a new equilibrium.
