The amount of heat energy that is required to convert a unit mass of a solid at its melting point into a liquid without an increase in temperature is known as heat of fusion.
The main characteristic of crystalline solids is a regular and repeating pattern of arrangement of atoms, moleules or ions. So, every such solid will require specific amount of heat of fusion.
