Latent Heat in Refrigeration Explained

Latent Heat is the heat that is required to change a particular liquid to a gas state, (or the heat that is removed from a gas to condense it to become a liquid), without any change in the temperature.

latent heat
  • Heat is a form of energy that is transferred from one object to another object.
  • Heat Is a form of energy transferred by a difference in temperature.
  • Heat transfer can occur, when there is a temperature difference between two or more objects. Heat will only flow from a warm object to a colder object.
  • The heat transfer is greatest, when there is a large temperature difference between two objects.
