The Effect of Pressure on thermodynamic properties

The effect of total pressure on properties of pure substances is of interest from more than a theoretical point of view. For example,

• solid-liquid and solidl-solidll transformations are of great practical importance in understanding phase transformations of minerals driven by the enormous pressures deep below the earth's surface.

• High pressures can accentuate the nonideal behavior of gases.

• In a more frivolous vein, because pressure on ice reduces its melting point, ice-skate blades glide on a thin film of liquid water created by the force exerted by the blade on the ice.
