• The melting point is the temperature at which a solid changes into a liquid.
  • Solids are almost completely incompressible and are the densest of the three states of matter.
  • At its melting point, the disruptive vibrations of the particles of the solid overcome the attractive forces operating within the solid.
  • The melting point of a solid is the same as the freezing point of the liquid.
  • Gases become solids at extremely low temperatures, and liquids will also become solid if the temperature is low enough.
  • Table below gives the melting points of some common materials.
