Specific latent heat is characterized as the measure of warm vitality (heat, Q) that is consumed or discharged when a body experiences a steady temperature process.
The formula for specific latent heat is,
L = Q/m
- L= Specific latent heat
- Q = Heat retained or discharged
- m = Mass of a substance
Unit of specific latent heat
The most well-known units of specific latent heat are joules per gram (J/g) and kilojoules per kilogram (kJ/kg).
