Answer: $\Delta H$ is less than $\Delta E$ for combustion of carbon to carbon
In the formation of $CO_2$ from carbon on combustion,
$C(s) + O_2 (g) \longrightarrow CO_2(g)$
Since, $\Delta n_g = n_p - n_r$ and $\Delta H = \Delta E + \Delta n_gRT$
$\Delta n_g = 1 -1 = 0$
$\therefore \Delta H = \Delta E$
