Latent Heat Table

Here is the Latent Heat table which shows the latent heat of vaporization and change of phase temperatures for some of the common fluids and gases. Latent heat is the heat absorbed or released as the result of a phase change. This temperature change during a phase change is due to the energy released from the potential energy stored in the bonds between the particles, and not due to the energy release from the kinetic energy of the particle. Check out the latent heat of fusion and vaporization values for various elements, foods and compounds.
