Although ice exhibits a large number of polymorphs, everything from Ice I to Ice VII, the ice in your soft drink or skating rink is Ice I. For completeness sake these different forms of ice have different crystal lattice structures dependent on temperature and pressure. Ice I converts to Ice II or Ice III at about 2 kb , so ice on earth never naturally gets to any denser conviguration.

When ice melts it reaches a temperature when a change of state occurs. During this process all heat going to the ice goes into melting the ice, not raising its temperature. If you were to measure the temperature of a pan filled with ice cooled to below 0o C as you applied heat to it you would see the following stages: # The temperature of the ice rises as the heat is applied until the temperature reaches 0oC. During this period there is no melting. # The ice starts to melt but the temperature of the ice and water stays at 0oC. # Once all the ice is totally melted, the temperature of the water starts to rise as more heat is applied.

The freezing point of H20 is 32 degrees F, 0 degrees C

Water and ice change state (melt or freeze) at 0oC

The temperature of the water and ice will stay at that point until the the change of state is complete.

The ice turns to water if there is heat coming in (its environment is above 0oC). Water turns to ice if heat is leaving the system (its environment is below 0oC)

adding energy to a solid increases the temperature of the solid. As the temperature increases, the particles of the solid move faster.

Ice is simply frozen water. When the atoms that make up the ice gain to much kinetic energy (heat) they brake apart, turning the solid in to a liquid. In this case ice to water.

Rather than melts, dry ice evaporates. This process is called sublimation and happens at a slower rate than the melting of water ice.
