Solid sodium metal will reacts with liquid water to form sodium hydroxide [NaOH (aq)]
and Hydrogengas. The standard Enthalpy of this reaction is -368.4 kJ.
How do I write the stoichiometric/balanced equation for this reaction?
How much sodium metal and water would have to be used to produce enough heat
to cause the temperature of 1 liter of water in a surrounding water jacket to increase
from 25.00C to 25.50 C? (The specific heat of water is 4.18 J/g C and a density
of 1.00 g/ml can be assumed. )
