# Problem: Consider the systems shown in the following figure. In one case the battery becomes completely discharged by running the current through a heater, and in the other by running a fan. Both processes occur at constant pressure. In both cases the change in state of the system is the same: The battery goes from being fully charged to being fully discharged. Yet in one case the heat evolved is large, and in the other it is small.What can you say about the relationship between enthalpy change and q in this case, as compared with others that we have considered?
