Latent heat is the amount of heat required to convert a solid into a liquid or vapour, or a liquid into a vapour without the change in the temperature. It is the energy discharged or absorbed by a body during steady state temperature. Use our online latent heat calculator to find the amount of energy that was generated for the given values of mass of the substance and the specific latent heat.
