For pure water, 585 calories per gram at 68 degrees F. Latent heat of fusion (126) – heat removed from a liquid during freezing (or added to a solid during thawing) that produces a change in state but not temperature. For pure water, 80 calories per gram at 32 deg. F Latent heat vaporization (126) – heat added to a liquid during evaporation (or released from a
