Low importance[edit]

Why is melting of "Low" importance.. why is this article not in chemistry? I think in chemistry it is AT least a mid importance, just as it should be in physics.. Anyways, I'm adding chemistry tag as medium, but I won't change the physics importance for now. IlyaV (talk) 18:49, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Dubious tag - Melting and freezing point same temperature?[edit]

This line: "The melting point and freezing point are usually the same temperature" needs clarification, improving, and revising. (forgot to add my signature on 18:15, 9 January 2007) -- 5Q5 18:16, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Um, essentially there is a point which is a phase transition between liquid and solid. When you go through transition from solid to liquid it's called "melting", when you go through the SAME transition point from liquid to solid it's called "freezing". As such, the unique thing is the phase transition temperature, and the freezing/melting temperatures are equal to it. IlyaV (talk)

"Melt"[edit]

I think this article should be renamed 'Melt'. Mike Simpson 06:31, 24 Jun 2004 (UTC)

but melt is an article on a band of middle schoolers.

what? yur crazy

"Molten"[edit]

"Molten" redirects here but wouldn't it better redirect to liquid, from a semantic point of view? Nurg 08:07, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

KISS KISS MAKING OUT WITH THE COMPUTER ALLday!!!!

Wrong[edit]

this article is wrong. substance may melt at constant


Vandalism?[edit]

Is the opening line in this article a vandal's joke: "In physics, cheese is the process of heating a solid..." —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 5Q5 (talkcontribs) 14:44, 13 March 2007 (UTC).

Need References[edit]

I edited the article a little to make it more accurate. If anyone has any revisions or references, they'd be greatly appreciated. Its not great, but its a start. However, we might want to merge this article with the melting point one. Torris 20:16, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

incomplete sentence[edit]

"From a thermodynamics point of view, at the melting point the change in Gibbs free energy (ΔG) of the material is zero, but the enthalpy (H) and the . Melting" ( Martin | talkcontribs 02:19, 10 April 2011 (UTC))

Heat transfer[edit]

Added lede to heat transfer, here. Prokaryotes (talk) 16:59, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
