How Does a Ice Cube Melt?

Answer

Ice cubes usually melt when the temperature is above the melting point of water. The molecules in ice cubes absorb heat and expand and with enough energy, the bonds holding the atoms together are broken and melting occurs. It should be noted that during melting, the excess heat does not lead to temperature change but breaking of bonds.

Ice cubes are frozen masses of water. If you want them to melt, expose them to high temperatures. This is called an endothermic process where the temperature of the environment is higher that of the cube. Ice cubes can also be placed in water for them to melt.
