# As melting of ice is an ___________ process, supplying heat to the system shifts the equilibrium in the __________ direction and viceversa.

(a) endothermic, backward

(b) exothermic, backward

(c) endothermic, forward

(d) exothermic, forward

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.
