Delta U = Delta H when there is constant pressure and constant volume. Remember that Delta U = q +w. Delta H = q when there is constant pressure. w= -P Delta V. So when volume is constant, Delta V = 0. Therefore when there is constant pressure and volume, you can substitute q & w and get delta U = delta H.

Hi, I'm looking back at this and I'm just confused because your explanation totally makes sense with the equation you gave, and because I know that with constant volume work equals 0 so q=delta U. with your explanation, would this make delta H=delta U=q under constant volume, and people are saying that q is only equal to delta H under constant pressure....I'm just lost with the inconsistency and was wondering if you could elaborate a bit.
