Answer:

Would not the temperature of the reaction vessel markedly increase?

Explanation:

You perform a neutralization reaction with the formation of water, and #NaCl(aq)#...

#NaOH(aq) + HCl(aq) rarr NaCl(aq) + H_2O(l)#...

Given some extra data, we could calculate the heat associated with the formation of #0.05*mol# of #NaCl(aq)#...of course you have not really specified the concentration of the acid or hydroxide solutions...
