Expert Answer:

The temperature of ice is same as that of cold water because of the latent heat of fusion. Latent heat of fusion of ice is heat energy required in calories by one gram of ice to completely convert itself into water without increase in temperature. When ice melts, it remains at 0 °C (32 °F), and the liquid water that is formed with the latent heat of fusion is also at 0 °C.
