What factors affect heat of neutralization?

Heat change of neutralization reaction is affected by 3 factors:
  • Quantity of acid and alkali.
  • Basicity of the acid and alkali.
  • Strength of acid and alkali.

Likewise, people ask, what affects enthalpy of neutralization?

The standard enthalpy change of neutralization is the enthalpy change when solutions of an acid and an alkali react together under standard conditions to produce 1 mole of water. Enthalpy changes of neutralization are always negative - heat is released when an acid and and alkali react.

what is heat of neutralization? The heat of neutralization(better known as enthalpy of neutralization) is the energy released when one equivalent of acid reacts with one one equivalent of a base (neutralization reaction) to produce salt and water as the products. It is a type of enthalpy of reaction.

Then, why is the heat of neutralization the same?

Same with a strong base. So, the reason the heat (enthalpy) of neutralization of a strong acid (actually ) with a strong base (actually ) is always the same is just that. The strong acids are all just solutions of the hydronium ion and the solution of the strong bases are just hydroxide ion.

What is the heat of neutralization of HCl and NaOH?

The heat of reaction of one mole of H+ and OH- is 57.3 KJ. So, the heat of neutralisation of HCl and NaOH will be very cery close to 57.3 KJ per mole( As Both HCl and NaOH are strong elctrolytes so both of them quite easily without any considerable expense of energy furnish H+ and OH- ions respectively.
