Answer by  greggula (112)

Water freezes and becomes ice when it falls anywhere below the temperature of 32 Fahrenheit or 0 degrees Celsius. Conversely ice melts back into water when it reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit or 0 degrees Celsius. The temperature is more precise when speaking of when ice melts because there are other requirements necessary for ice to form than just temperature alone.

Water typically freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, also 0 degrees Celsius. Adding salt or pressure increases the temperature at which it freezes.

Pure water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius or 273. 15 Kelvin or 491. 67 Rankine)at standard atmospheric pressure. Pressure can have can effect on the freezing point. Also it must be noted that if ions are dissolved in water the freezing point will drop considerably due to the added solute.
