The heat of fusion is the amount of energy required to change 1 unit mass of a solid to a liquid at constant temperature.

The heat of fusion is:Q = specific heat x mass

In nuclear fusion, you take 4 atoms of hydrogen, and fuse them into helium. The resulting atom has less mass then the 4 atoms combined. That loss of mass is what we gets as energy. How much energy you may ask? E = mc2.
