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

To calculate the heat of solution, divide the total energy absorbed by 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?

**First, determine the total energy absorbed.**Q = c*m*change in T

**Next, determine the number of moles of solute.**Calculate the number of moles of solute.

**Finally, calculate the head of solution.**Calculate the heat of the solution using the formula above.
