Every substance theoretically contains an amount of heat equal to the heat energy required to raise its temperature from absolute zero to its temperature at a given time. This is referred to as heat content, which consists of sensible heat and latent heat. Sensible heat can be felt because it changes the temperature of the substance. Latent heat, which is not felt, is seen as it changes the state of substance from solid to liquid or liquid to gas.
