Heat capacity & enthalpy

Postby Zenita Leang 2K » Sun Jan 27, 2019 4:56 pm

Is heat capacity the same thing as enthalpy? If not, what is the difference?

They are not the same thing.

Heat capacity is the number of heat units needed to raise the temperature of a body by one degree, while enthalpy is heat energy.
