Freezing or solidification is a phase change in which a liquid turns into a
solid when its temperature is lowered below its freezing point. The reverse
process is melting.
\All known liquids, except liquid helium, freeze when the temperature is
lowered enough. Liquid helium remains liquid at atmospheric pressure
even at absolute zero, and can be solidified only under pressure.[1] For
most substances, the melting and freezing points are the same
temperature; however, certain substances possess differing solid-liquid
transition temperatures. For example, agar displays a hysteresis in its
melting and freezing temperatures. It melts at 85 °C (185 °F) and solidifies
from 31 °C to 40 °C (89.6 °F to 104 °F).
