Hi I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this question?

You place 100ml of water into a freezer and monitor the variation of the temperature of the water with time.
After some time you find that the temperature reaches 0C, then remains constant at 0C for a period of time before continuing to fall.

What happens to the water during the period in which the temperature is constant?

At 0 degree C, water has to loose its latent heat for the phase transformation, that is why temperature remains constant for some time at 0 deg. C.
