Question: What is the equation for the energy required to change a materials state?
Energy (J) = mass (kg) x specific latent heat (J/kg).
Energy must be in Joules (J).
Mass must be in kilograms (kg).
Specific latent heat will be in (J/kg)
Examples of Specific Latent Heats:
|Material||Specific Latent Heat of Fusion (J/kg)||Specific Latent Heat of Vaporisation (J/kg)|
