Homework Help: PLEASE HELP ME. Enthalpy Problem

  1. Dec 10, 2006 #1
    Could I get a solution to this question?

    In a laboratory experiment in calorimetry, 100 mL of 0.500 M of acetic acid is mixed with 100 mL of 0.500 M sodium hydroxide in a calorimeter. The temperature rises from 25.00 C to 27.55 C. The heat capacity of the calorimeter is 150.48 J/C, and the density of the resulting solution is 1.034g/mL. Given that the specific heat capacity of 0.250 M of sodium acetate is 4.034 Jg-1C-1, calculate the enthalpy of neutralization of acetic acid.

    Answer: -50.2kJ/mol

    perhaps you should explain what you've done so far. We don't help you with your hw unless you demonstrate you have at least tried to do it yourself.
