# Specific Latent Heat Calculator

Specific Latent heat of a substance refers to the absorption or release of heat energy during the change in its physical state of matter, with constant temperature and pressure. The term was first introduced by Scottish chemist Joseph Black. The SI unit of latent heat is joule. The amount of energy to convert 1 kg of water from solid state to liquid is called as the specific latent heat of fusion. Calculate Specific latent heat using heat energy and mass with this online calculator.

#### Formula:

L = Q / m Where, L = Specific Latent Heat Q = Energy in Heat m = Mass

#### Example:

The mass and heat energy of a substance is 50 kgs and 23 kJ, then L = 23 / 50
= 0.46 kJ/kg
