Heat melts ice, not Temperature.

Heat melts ice, not Temperature.

You need to show some work of your own, you can't just come here and ask for an answer. That's not the way the forum works. You should read the rules. If you don't follow them, you run the risk of your post just getting deleted (or closed).
