The enthalpy of neutralization

The enthalpy of neutralization is calculated using equations (9) and (11) and the experimental data. for ∆T and n. ∆T for the neutralization is obtained by measuring the temperatures of the acid and base before mixing and the temperature of the mixture after mixing. The temperatures are recorded at known time intervals. The values are plotted on a temperature versus time graph and the best straight line for each set of data is extrapolated to the time of mixing. Typical results are illustrated in Figure 7-1. Note that the acid and base are at the same initial temperature.
