Thermodynamic System

In chemistry, our concern is not with the absolute value of enthalpy but rather the change in the enthalpy. The absolute enthalpy cannot be estimated directly since the value of the absolute internal energy cannot be reckoned for real systems. Further, in chemistry and thermodynamics, we are interested in measuring the change in enthalpy, not its absolute value.
