###### FREE Expert Solution

To determine which solids will melt under applied pressure, use the Clausius-Clapeyron Equation:

$\overline{){\mathbf{ln}}\frac{{\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{1}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{-}}\frac{\mathbf{∆}{\mathbf{H}}_{\mathbf{fusion}}}{\mathbf{R}}\mathbf{\left[}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{T}}_{\mathbf{2}}}\mathbf{-}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{T}}_{\mathbf{1}}}\mathbf{\right]}}$

Step 1: Calculate ΔHfusion for each solid
