Answer:

The solid-liquid transition temperature for water at normal atmospheric pressure is 0'C.

Explanation:

Melting points are a temperature, affected by pressure, but not by the surrounding temperature.

Answer:

For the reaction.....#H_2O(s) rightleftharpoons H_2O(l)#........

Explanation:

You might remember the experiment you did in the laboratory in this context....

#H_2O(s)rightleftharpoonsH_2O(l)#

....where temperature is plotted against time....typically you get..

In the presence of ICE and water, the temperature remains constant at #0# #""^@C#. In the presence of water and steam, the temperature remains constant at #100# #""^@C#.
