Answer to Question #15153 in Physical Chemistry for Sarah

Question #15153
why does sulfuric acid get hotter when you neutralise it?
Expert's answer
In the neutralization reaction an acid reacts with a base, for example sulfuric
acid reacts with barium hydroxide by reaction
H2SO4 + Ba(OH)2 = BaSO4 + 2
H2O
In this reaction new bonds are formed between H(+) and OH(-) and water
molecules are formed. This reaction is exothermic, thus the solution gets
hotter.
