When 0.0500 moles of HCL is reacted with 0.0500 moles of NaOH in 50.0 mL of water, the temperature of the water increases by 13.7 degrees C. Caclulate the heat for this reaction in terms of joules per mole of HCl. The heat capacity of the system is 209.2 joules per degree centigrade.
mass H2O x specific heat x delta T = joules heat evolved per 0.05 mol HCl. Convert to J/mol. Centigrade? That went out of use several years ago. It is now Celsius.
