Lecture 2: Enthalpy • Reading: Zumdahl 9.2, 9.3 • Outline – Define a new thermo variable: enthalpy ( H ), the heat transferred at constant pressure – Define the manner in which substances “store” heat energy: heat capacity ( C V , C P ) – Mathematical form for Δ E and Δ H using C V and C P

Heat and Work Sign Conventions • If system releases heat q < 0 (q is negative) • If system absorbs heat q > 0 (q is positive) • If system does work w < 0 (w is negative) • If work done on system w > 0 (w is positive) Δ E = q + w
Δ E = q + w If system loses energy: E final < E initial E final -E initial = Δ E < 0. If system gains energy: E final > E initial E final -E initial = Δ E > 0. E n e rg y E n e rg y E initial E final Δ E > 0 E in E initial E final Δ E < 0 E out

We would like to know about the internal energy change accompanying chemical processes: Consider a process carried out at constant P: The work term at constant pressure represents the energy required to change the volume of the system…this is “PV-work.” The remainder of the internal energy is transferred as heat energy. This heat energy is given subscript “P” to indicate that it is transferred at constant pressure. Measuring the heat flow at const P gives you the internal energy minus PV-work.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
