Calculate for Ice

CalcIce

Specific enthalpy of water (any phase) in equilibrium with saturated air at 101,325 Pa
Formulas derived from ASHARE Fundamentals Book, Chapter 6, Table 1.
This function should be expanded to cover pressures other than 101,325 Pa. Therefore, the pressure is used as an input parameter if CalcIce is True, Hw is calculated for ice at triple point (saturation) (T=0.01C)
