The enthalpy of neutralization for the reaction of a strong acid with a strong base is −56 kJ/mol of water produced. How much energy will be released when 198.5 mL of 0.400 M HCl is mixed with 150.1 mL of 0.500 M NaOH?
0.1985L x 0.400 = 0.07940 mol HCl
0.1501L x 0.500 = 0.07505 mol NaOH
Therefore, 0.07505 mol react.
0.07505 mol x 56 kJ/mol = ? kJ
