What is melting point

Melting Point :

The temperature at which a given solid will melt is called the melting point.

The melting point is also called Liquefaction point. 

The melting point of a solid is the temperature at which it changes state from solid to liquid at atmospheric pressure. 

In theory, the melting point of a solid should be the same as the freezing point of the liquid.

At the melting point, the solid and liquid phase exist in equilibrium.
