sir/madam please tell me the difference between melting point and fusion? and please explain latent heat of fusion??

The changing of solid state into liquid state is fusion while the minimum temperature at which the solid state changes into liquid state at normal atmospheric pressure is called its melting point.
When thermal energy is withdrawn from a liquid or solid, the temperature falls. When thermal energy is added to a liquid or solid, the temperature rises. However, at the transition point between solid and liquid (the melting point), extra energy is required (the heat of fusion).
