# Types of heat like latent heat

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking about different types of heat, specifically mentioning latent heat as one type. It suggests an interest in understanding various forms of heat energy and their characteristics, such as sensible heat and others.

#### Answer

Latent heat of fusion and latent heat of vaporization.

The two main types of latent heat are the latent heat of fusion and the latent heat of vaporization.

##### Answer for screen readers

The two main types of latent heat are the latent heat of fusion and the latent heat of vaporization.

#### More Information

Latent heat of fusion is involved in melting or freezing, while latent heat of vaporization is involved in boiling or condensation.

#### Tips

Sometimes people confuse latent heat with sensible heat. Remember that latent heat relates to phase changes and does not alter the temperature even though energy is absorbed or released.
