What is Latent heat? Latent heat is heat that is left inside a substance and has not been able to cool fully.
How can you identify Latent heat on a graph? The graphs curve will go flat before dropping temperature once the latent heat is gone.
What is an insulator? An insulator is something that stops or reduces heat transfer from one substance to another.
