### Entropy and Enthalpy

What is the difference between entropy and enthalpy?

### Re: Entropy and Enthalpy

From what I understand, entropy is the amount of disorder in a system, while enthalpy is the amount of heat released/absorbed at a constant pressure (from the course reader).

I'm not sure if just these plain explanations help, but they are two different thermodynamic properties. Also, enthalpy has units in Joules, while entropy is measured in Joules per kelvin.
