How is ?H different from de?

For all reactions in which the number of moles of gases changes during the reaction, ΔH and ΔE are different. In this case, the difference between ΔH and ΔE is the amount of work that the surroundings do if the pressure remains constant.

Similarly, it is asked, what is the change in enthalpy Δh for a chemical reaction How is ΔH different from δe?

A negative ΔH means that heat flows from a system to its surroundings; a positive ΔH means that heat flows into a system from its surroundings. For a chemical reaction, the enthalpy of reaction (ΔH rxn) is the difference in enthalpy between products and reactants; the units of ΔH rxn are kilojoules per mole.

Beside above, is Q the same as Delta H? You can say that Q (Heat) is energy in transit. Enthalpy (Delta H), on the other hand, is the state of the system, the total heat content. They both can deal with heat (qp) (Q at constant pressure) = (Delta H) but both Heat and Enthalpy always refer to energy, not specifically Heat.

In respect to this, what is δe?

ΔE is the change in internal energy of a system. q is the heat flowing into the system. w is the work being done by the system. If q is positive, we say that the reaction is endothermic, that is, heat flows into the reaction from the outside surroundings.

What is the difference between change in enthalpy and change in internal energy?

Internal energy is the 'intrinsic' energy of some system, can be measured with reference to something within the system, e.g. chemical bonds, vibrational energy states, etc. Enthalpy change is the heat (i.e. energy transferred due to temperature difference) change at constant pressure due to some chemical process.
