I'm going crazy! The heat necessary to change the state of water between a solid and a liquid is called the latent heat of vaporization, latent heat of solidification, latent heat of fusion, latent heat of liquefaction, or none of the above. I thought it was none of the above, but now I think it might be latent heat of fusion. Pleaz help. Thanks

You are right, it is the latent heat of fusion.

Thank you very much. I am always second guessing myself
