Answer:

We are given that............and get #DeltaH_"rxn"=-734.4*kJ#

Explanation:

We are given that......

#NaOH(s) stackrel(H_2O)rarrNa^(+) + HO^(-) + Delta#

Where #Delta=445.1*kJ# per mole of reaction as written........the enthalpy term was NEGATIVE and thus we regard heat as a product.

And this in your proposed reaction:

#Delta_"rxn"=1.65*molxx(-445.1*kJ*mol^-1)=-734.4*kJ#
