Concepts and Equations

Postby Jesse_torres2H » Tue Jan 23, 2018 6:24 pm

Is there a specific reason the equation H=U-PV is not on the constants and equations sheet? Should we just simply memorize this?

This formula is essentially a derivation of the original formula deltaH=q+w. By plugging in deltaU and PdeltaV, it is possible to achive the given formula.

It should be a positive sign in the equation you gave, but you can get this equation from ΔU = q + w which is on the constants and equations sheet. Under constant pressure, ΔU = qp + w. qp = ΔH and w = -PΔV. If you plug those in and rearrange, you get the equation ΔH = ΔU + PΔV.
