Melting, or fusion, is a physical process that results in the phase transition of a substance from a solid to a liquid. This occurs when the internal energy of the solid increases, typically by the application of heat or pressure, which increases the substance's temperature to the melting point. At the melting point, the ordering of ions or molecules in the solid breaks down to a less ordered state, and the solid melts to become a liquid. Substances in the molten state generally have reduced viscosity as the temperature increases. An exception to this principle is the element sulfur, whose viscosity increases in the range of 160 °C to 180 °C due to polymerization.Some organic compounds melt through mesophases, states of partial order between solid and liquid.
Molten refers to a substance, typically a metal or rock, that is in a liquid state as a result of being heated to a high temperature.
melted; being in a state of fusion, esp. when the liquid state is produced by a high degree of heat; as, molten iron
made by melting and casting the substance or metal of which the thing is formed; as, a molten image
