The expression for the latent heat is, Here, is the heat energy and is the mass of the substance. The heat energy needed to change the phase of the substance per kilogram of mass is called as latent heat. The SI unit of the mass is kilogram and the SI unit of heat energy is joule. The heat energy per unit mass is defined as the latent heat. So, the unit of the latent heat is . Hence, options (a), (b), and (c) are incorrect. Therefore, option is correct.
