What are the differences between enthalpy and internal energy?

Thank you

Enthalpy is the amount of heat released or absorbed in a thermodynamic system, or in other words, a change in energy in the form of heat. Internal energy, however, is the total amount of energy stored within a system, which involves both heat transferred to and work done by the system.
