  1. Freezing

    Freezing or solidification is a phase transition in which a liquid turns into a solid when its temperature is lowered below its freezing point. 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. 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 and solidifies from 31 °C to 40 °C.
