Assume the densities of the solutions are all 1.00 g/mL, and the specific heat capacities of the solutions are 4.2 J/g · K.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The enthalpy change for the reaction per mole of CsOH has to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Standard enthalpy of the reaction,ΔrHo, is the change in enthalpy that happens when matter is transformed by a given chemical reaction, when all reactants and products are in their standard states.

Enthalpy of the reaction,ΔrH, is the change in enthalpy that happens when matter is transformed by a given chemical reaction

Heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1g of substance by 1K. Energy gained or lost can be calculated using the below equation.

q = C × m × ΔT

Where,

q= energy gained or lost for a given mass of substance (m)

C =specific heat capacity,

ΔT= change in temperature.

### Explanation of Solution

Given,

Specific heat capacity of the solution=4.20JK/g

Density of HCl=1g/mL

Mass of HCl=1g/mL× 400mL =400g

Mass of CsOH=1g/mL × 100mL =100g

Determine the amount of CsOH

100g(1mol÷149.912 g) = 0.670mol

Assume qr+qsol=0

qsol can be calculated from q=C×m×ΔT, as

qsol=(400g of HCl + 100g of CsOH) × 4
