Homework Help: Enthalpy and heat change

  1. Jan 23, 2007 #1
    You people heard about hess law means that sum of all enthalpies of chemical reactions takes place but why we only call sum of all enthalpies?

    A----B dH1
    B----C dH2 HESS LAW
    DH = dH1 + dH2

    A----B dQ1
    B----C dQ2 ?
    DQ = dQ1 + dQ2
    In the above representations one is associated with enthapy and another is heat
    whethe second one is valid or not?if so why?
