Problem: Derive a relationship between ΔH and ΔE for a process in which the temperature of a fixed amount of an ideal gas changes.

FREE Expert Solution

enthalpy (H) of a system → sum of its internal energy and the product of its pressure and volume

H = E + PV

change in enthalpy:

ΔH = ΔE + PΔV

constant P and n (amount of gas) are constant:
