Is there a difference between delta H and delta U?

Delta h is change in enthalpy, while delta u is the change within the internal energy of the system.

Delta h is the change in the enthalpy, while the delta u is the change in the internal energy. With internal energy, it is the amount of the energy that a system contains.

Delta h is equal to the delta u plus the pressure times change in volume.
AKA:
ΔH = ΔU + PΔV.

Lavelle also said he would go into more detail about this next lecture on Wednesday.
