At the solidification temperature, atoms from the liquid, such as molten metal, begin to bond together and start to form crystals. The moment a crystal begins to grow is know as nucleus and the point where it occurs is the nucleation point. When a metal begins to solidify, multiple crystals begin to grow in the liquid.
When a substance changes phase, the arrangement of its molecules changes, but its temperature does not change. If the new arrangement has a higher amount of thermal energy, then the substance absorbs thermal energy from its environment in order to make the phase change. If the new arrangement has a lower amount of thermal energy, the substance releases thermal energy to its environment.
Latent heat of vaporization is a physical property of a substance. It is defined as the heat required to change one mole of liquid at its boiling point under standard atmospheric pressure. It is expressed as kg/mol or kJ/kg. When a material in liquid state is given energy, it changes its phase from liquid to vapor; the energy absorbed in this process is called heat of vaporization. The heat of vaporization of water is about 2,260 kJ/kg, which is equal to 40.8 kJ/mol.
The enthalpy of fusion of a substance, also known as (latent) heat of fusion, is the change in its enthalpy resulting from providing energy, typically heat, to a specific quantity of the substance to change its state from a solid to a liquid, at constant pressure.
