Step 1

The specific heat capacity for a given chemical substance or a solution can be defined as the amount of heat which is required to raise the temperature of a given substance per unit of its mass. The mathematical relationship between specific heat capacity, mass, change in temperature and the heat of the solution is given by the following equation: help_outlineImage Transcriptioncloseq=mxcxAT q is the amount of heat or energy released or absorbed during the reaction m is the mass of the given substance c is the specific heat capacity AT is the change in the temperature of the system fullscreen
Step 2

The initial temperature is given to be 2.0oC

The final temperature after is given to be 48.8 oC

The specific heat capacity of solution is given to be 4.190 J g-1 oC-1.

The density of the solution is given to be 1.025 g/mL.

The molarity and the volume of the NaOH and HCl solution is given to be 2.500 M and 250 mL respectively.

Hence, the total volume of the mixture will be 250 mL+250 mL=500 mL.

The mass of the solution can be calculated as follows:

Step 3

The heat which is absorbed or released during th...
