delta H and q

Postby almaochoa2D » Sun Feb 10, 2019 3:37 pm

I'm very confused as to why the textbook inter changes between delta H and q. I thought they weren't the same thing, but for many solutions the textbook will substitute delta H for q. Can someone please explain to me why this is possible.

deltaH is the same as q if the system is under constant pressure.
