Sensible heat: We can measure the rise in temperature. When we add more heat to a substance. Example – heat that added to water from 0º C to 100º C. This added heat is measured as sensible heat. 

Latent heat: Though there is addition of heat there will be no rise in temperature. This is latent heat. Example – when water boils at 100º C though we added more heat the temperature remains at 100º C till all water becomes steam.
