The melting point is considered to be the temperature at which a substance changes it’s physical state from that of a solid to a liquid. It can also be the same temperature as the freezing point, which is the reverse process when a liquid changes into a solid.
This infographic from AlansFactoryOutlet.com explores the melting point of 80 well-known elements, substances, and metal alloys that can be found on Earth and in the atmosphere. Its ascending format starts out with the lowest melting point, also the freezing point, of Hydrogen at -434.4 degrees Fahrenheit, which is only 24 degrees warmer than that of the Boomerang Nebula. The chart ends with the highest melting point of Tantalum Carbide, a whopping 6,960 °F.
Although this high melting point doesn’t even come close to the temperature of the sun, which is 9,941°F! You may be surprised to find that substances such as beeswax have similar melting points to that of metals like potassium.
