Enthalpy vs Heat

Postby Jade Fosburgh Discussion 2C » Mon Jan 15, 2018 7:28 pm

Could someone explain the difference between enthalpy (H) and heat (q)?

enthalpy is the amount of heat released or absorbed at a constant pressure. Heat is a form of energy

Heat is energy transferred as a result of a temperature difference while enthalpy is the amount of heat released by a system at a constant pressure.
