So currently working through some questions and wanted some clarification over why what I did was wrong.
The question is: calculate the temperature is 10cm^3 of 0.1mol dm^-3 NaOH is reacted with 20cm^3 of 0.1mol dm^-3 HCl. We're told that the enthalpy change of neutralisation is -58kJmol^-1.
So what I did is:
then rearranged mcΔt to
Δt=-174/4.18x30 to get -1.39C however that isn't correct. Can anyone tell me why and where I went wrong? The answer in the textbook is 0.46°C.
