Enter the total energy released or absorbed and the number of moles of solute into the calculator to determine the heat of the solution.

Heat of Solution Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a heat of solution.

HS = q / n

  • Where HS is the heat of solution (molar enthalpy)
  • q is the total energy absorbed
  • n is the total number of moles of solute

Heat of Solution Definition

Heat of solution is defined as the total heat absorbed when a solute dissolves.

Heat of Solution Example

How to calculate a heat of solution?

  1. First, determine the total energy absorbed.

    Q = c*m*change in T

  2. Next, determine the number of moles of solute.

    Calculate the number of moles of solute.

  3. Finally, calculate the head of solution.

    Calculate the heat of the solution using the formula above.
