Enthalpy

Postby Hellen Truong 2J » Sat Jan 20, 2018 2:45 pm

Why is enthalpy related to heat under constant pressure but not constant volume? What is the difference between enthalpy and heat in general?

Heat is the energy transferred from a system to its surroundings and enthalpy is the measurement of the amount of heat that was exchanged.

Enthalpy measures the heat given off or absorbed when a reaction is held at a constant pressure. When it's not constant pressure, it's just heat, not enthalpy.

The enthalpy of a system is the total amount of heat present in it.
