I have trying to write a hypothesis for this reaction but boy am I lost

NaOH --> Na(+) + OH(-)
NaOH + H (+) + Cl (-) --> H20 + Na(+) + Cl(-)
NaOH +OH (-) + H(+) Cl (-) --> H20 + Na(+) + Cl(-)

Which reaction would produce the most heat and why??
How would i calculate this

Thanks

Look up enthalpies of formations then compare- summation of the products minus the summation of the reactants. By the way, equation #3 makes no sense.
