A linear correlation between the specific heat C(P) and the thermal expansion alpha(p) is established here for constant temperatures close to the melting pressure in ammonia solid III. For this correlation, the experimental data for the isothermal compressibility kappa(T) is analysed according to a power-law formula with the critical exponent gamma and, the C(P) and alpha(p) are calculated as a function of pressure near the melting point in ammonia solid III.
