If 15.0 mL of a 1.5M HCl solution at 22.5 degrees C is mixed with 25.0mL of a 1.5M NaOH solution at 21.5 degrees C that is in a calorimeter, and the final mixed solution temperature ends up at 28.5 degrees C, what is the balanced equation for this reaction?
What kind of a balanced equation are you talking about? You can have the balanced CHEMICAL equation, you can have the balanced MATH equation, or the balanced HEAT equation. I'll assume you want the chemical equation; I also assume that this is the first of several questions.
NaOH + HCl ==> NaCl + H2O
