Today’s Demo time lapse:

Ice melting animation (please come and join me inside the ice crystal as it begins to melt)-



Notice that the water molecules are initially in the solid phase, which is a 3 dimensional geometric pattern (crystal formation). They are initially vibrating in their fixed positions very slowly (low temperature) and as they absorb kinetic energy (heat) their vibration increases.  The vibrations increase up until the molecules start pulling away from each other(melting). Why would the temperature stay constant at this point.

1: Please watch the ice melting animation (35 secs above) 
    and lecture 1.15 – heating and cooling curves
