Enthalpy V Entropy

Postby JasmineChavez 1E » Mon Jan 11, 2016 12:57 am

I know we're discussing enthalpy right now but I always get confused when thinking of the word because entropy is so similar... Does anyone have any suggestions for mnemonics device to distinguish between the two?

Don't know if there are any great mnemonics, but the h in enthalpy should help you remember that enthalpy is deltaH.
