Additionally, if the change in internal energy is positive, then final internal energy is larger than initial internal energy. If the change in internal energy is negative, final internal energy is smaller than initial internal energy. The energy of a closed system can be altered by heating/cooling the system, or compressing/expanding the system, hence the equation delta U = Q + W, where q is heat and w is work.
