In the neutralization of a strong acid with a strong base,the essential reaction is the combination of H+(aq) + OH-(aq) = H2O(l). Two solutions,25.00 ml of 2.50M HCI(aq) and 25.00mil NaOH(aq),both initially at 21.1oC,are added toa polystyrene cup calorimeter and allowed to react.The temperature rises to 37.8oC Determine the heat of the neutralization reaction,expressed per mole of H2O formed? Is the reaction endothermic or exothermic
