melting point Temperature at which a substance changes from solid to liquid. The melting point of the solid has the same value as the freezing point of the liquid, thus the melting point of ice, 0°C (32°F or 273.15K), is the same as the freezing point of water.
melt·ing point • n. the temperature at which a given solid will melt.
