Constant Pressure Enthalpy

Why does delta H = q when there's constant pressure?

reactions typically take place in a place that is open to the atmosphere so there is a constant pressure. The heat that is released or absorbed by that reaction is then equal to the change in enthalpy for that said system.

Check page 279 of the textbook.

Hope this was helpful.
