Boiling Point: Boiling point is the property of the liquid.
It is the temperature where the vapour pressure of the liquid is equal to the external pressure of the liquid.
Boiling point occurs when the thermal energy of the liquid is enough to break the bonds,
 
Melting point: It is the property of the solid
It is the temperature when the liquid state and the solid state remains in equilibrium
It is independent of external pressure.
