In a constant-pressure calorimeter, 70.0 mL of 0.320 M Ba(OH) 2 was added to 70.0 mL of 0.640 M HCl. The reaction caused the temperature of the solution to rise from 22.94°C to 27.30°C. If the solution has the same density and specific heat as water (1.00 g/mL and 4.184 J/g·°C, respectively), what is ΔH for this reaction (per mole of H2O produced)? Assume that the total volume is the sum of the individual volumes.


Determine the ΔH by calculating for the heat involved using the calorimetry equation   and stoichiometry.

For this problem, follow these steps:

1. Find mass of solution

2. Find the change in temperature

3. Find heat (Q)

4. Calculate moles of H2O produced
5. Find heat released
