Enthalpy is the heat content of a system under constant pressure.


The equation and word problems are the ones that gets students thrown off in this topic.

It's also important to remember that a catalyst does not affect enthalpy.

As for the word problem, keep the formula in mind when you are solving them, and remember to convert it back or into whatever unit the question is asking for.
