(a) endothermic, backward

(b) exothermic, backward

(c) endothermic, forward

(d) exothermic, forward

1 Answer

 

Toolbox:
  • As melting of ice is an endothermic process, supplying heat to the system shifts the equilibrium in the forward direction and vice versa.
  • Increasing pressure decreases the freezing point of water and vice versa.
  • As ice has more volume than water, increasing pressure shifts the equilibrium in the forward direction and vice versa.

 

Answer: endothermic, forward
