is it reasonable to expect the heat of neutralization to be the same regardless of which acid is used? or should we expect each acid and base combination to have its own heat of neutralization?

  • CHEMISTRY -

    It depends upon what you mean by "the same." How much experimental error are you allowing? Think about this. The neutralization reaction is
    H^+ + OH^- ==> H2O. The other ions are spectator ions are they not?
