# What is the profile of the graph of temperature versus time, when water as a block ice is heated, and the temperature of the ice, water, and steam are periodically monitored?

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.

For the reaction.....${H}_{2} O \left(s\right) r i g h t \le f t h a r p \infty n s {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$........

#### Explanation:

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

${H}_{2} O \left(s\right) r i g h t \le f t h a r p \infty n s {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$

....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.
