In this section we will study a new state function, the internal energy U, and its relationship to heat and work.  Another important state function in chemistry is the enthalpy H.  will also be introduced  the heat capacities at constant pressure and volume, Cp and Cv, which give us the variations of internal energy and enthalpy with temperature.
