    WHAT IS LATENT HEAT OF FUION

    I assume you mean the "latent heat of fusion," which is the amount of heat required to change a solid to a liquid. A good example is how much heat is required to change ice or snow into water. It also applies to the reverse, or how much heat is "released" (rather than absorbed or needed/required) to change a liquid into a solid, i.e. making ice vs. melting it (as in the first example). There is a bunch of math associated with this process, but I won't bore you with the specifics.
    I am curious now; what brought this question on?
