Latent Heat Calculator

In Thermodynamics, 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. During the steady state temperature process, it is the energy discharged or absorbed by a body of a thermodynamic system. The latent heat can be determined from the mass of substance and the specific latent heat. Use this online latent heat calculator for the calculation of amount of energy in any thermodynamics system.

Formula:

Q = m x L Where, Q = Amount of Energy m = Mass of the Substance L = Specific Latent Heat

Example:

Find the latent heat of a substance with mass 30 kg and specific latent heat of 5 kJ-kgm-1

Solution,

Q = m x L
Q = 30 x 5
= 150 kJ
