Iwant any analogy for entropy & enthalpy...
For example quasi static process can be related to "old man with health problem walks almost static"... so students can easily understand. ... can you please suggest any analogy for ENTROPY & ENTHALPY

It's not clear how you want to analogize these two properties. Enthalpy burns your hand if you stick it into a pan of hot water. Who knows what entropy does.

Enthalpy h = u+pv, can you please explain burning of hand in terms of h = u, pv ... what are the changes in these terms

All I know is enthalpy = heat content of a substance. Entropy is more theoretical and variously described as a measure of disorder in a system.
