What happens to the hexagonal open structure of ice when sufficient pressure is applied to it?
Step 1 of 3
Solution 24RQ When the pressure is applied to the hexagon structured ice crystal, the sides of the hexagon starts reducing. At a particular pressure, the bond breaks and the water molecule become free and movable. So, the ice crystal becomes liquid water. So, if sufficient pressure is applied to ice, the open structure of hexagonal crystal breaks.
