What is the melting and boiling point of water?

The melting point of water is the temperature at which it changes from solid ice into liquid water. The melting point for water is 0 degrees C (32 degrees F). The boiling point of water varies with atmospheric pressure. At lower pressure or higher altitudes, the boiling point is lower. At sea level, pure water boils at 212 °F (100°C). The boiling point of water also depends on the purity of the water. Water that contains impurities, for example, saltwater boils at high temperature than pure water.
