### delta U= delta H

When does the Internal Energy (delta U) = delta H?

I think, at constant volume and constant pressure, delta U is equal to delta H.

When there is a constant volume or pressure, no expansion or compression work is being done by the system so w=0. When heat is at constant pressure, it equals the enthalpy change, so at constant pressure, delta U is equal to delta H.

When the volume of the reactants is equal to the volume of the products, delta U is equal to delta H.

### Re: delta U= delta H

Delta U= q+w and under constant pressure, qp=delta H and when no work is done Delta U=Delta H

Were also pretty helpful for me sorting it out in my head, hope they help!

under constant volume delta U equals delta H because at constant pressure q equals H and at constant volume no work is being done, so in that case U=q which is U=H in contact pressure and volume.
