Specific Enthalpy

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Specific enthalpy, abbreviated as h, is the enthalpy per unit mass.  It is also the total specific internal energy in a system and the product of pressure and specific volume.


Specific Enthalpy formula

\(\large{ h =  \frac{H}{m} =  u + p \; v  }\)   


\(\large{ h }\) = specific enthalpy

\(\large{ H }\) = enthalpy

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ p }\) = pressure

\(\large{ u }\) = specific internal energy

\(\large{ \upsilon }\)   (Greek symbol upsilon) = specific volume
