Entropy and Enthalpy

Postby Maria Trujillo 1L » Sun Feb 10, 2019 9:04 pm

Hello, what is a good way not to mix up entropy and enthalpy problems, with all these equations, it gets a bit confusing? Thank you.

Enthalpy has the letter "h" in it, so it corresponds to H. Not sure if that helps much, but usually, you should be able to differentiate between entropy and enthalpy based on what the problem is asking.

Usually in equations, S refers to entropy and H refers to enthalpy, you can use that to apply what's given/asked for in the problem and the equations on the equation sheets

Entropy is essentially the measure of change of enthalpy over temperature so I'd assume you can tell through that.
