- n. A thermodynamic function of a system, equivalent to the sum of the internal energy of the system plus the product of its volume multiplied by the pressure exerted on it by its surroundings.

This is known as enthalpy at source temperature and pressure, J / kg
To reach that end, Perkins+Will has used the latest sustainable technologies, such as enthalpy wheels that capture wind-generated warmth and wind turbines driven by tropical breezes.
The thermodynamic state function "enthalpy" is by definition H
• A ring of Carnot enthalpy exchangers surrounding the caldera, and
If there was not a mechanism in this universe making possible differences between entropy/enthalpy, those forces would not exist.
The nett reaction is still C + O2 - CO2 and there's only so much enthalpy you can get from that.
Its too bad no one did the enthalpy calculations before they did their modelling.
Roger Pielke has been making a point for years that the best measurement of the global thermometer is the ocean heat content or enthalpy.
The physical ability to do work is represented by the enthalpy of the fuel, so the numerator and denominator typically is measured in heat units such as Btus, joules, etc.
If 1/7.518 of the enthalpy (heat) in the products was directed at the kilogram of steel, the temperature rise would be reduced from 2,105 K to a little above 1,825 K which would result in a temperature of a little over 1,845 C and still potentially hot enough to melt some steel.
