Form of energy important in flow systems where temperatureand chemical composition play an important role
h = u + Pv h
: specific enthalpy, (kJ/kg, J/mol, Btu/lb etc.)
: specific internal energy
: specific volumeUnits for
obviously need to be consistent with hTotal enthalpy
(kJ) = (
) ; i.e. (kg) (kJ/kg) etc.
