### constant p

What does it mean if qp= deltaH?

### Re: constant p

This is the equation for change in enthalpy at constant pressure. At constant pressure, delta H is equal to the heat.

Enthalpy (which equals H) is amount of heat released divided by what is absorbed(at constant pressure)

### Re: constant p

It means that a change in the enthalpy of a system is equal to the heat released or absorbed at constant pressure. Since the external pressure is equivalent to the pressure of the system:
deltaH = q - P(deltaV) + P(deltaV), so deltaH equals q.

### Re: constant p

the definition of enthalpy is heat at constant pressure, so enthalpy (delta H) is the same as heat (q), which is why in an isobaric problem you can use q=deltaH
