Hey guys, Does an exothermic heat of solution raise the temperate of the solution? I don't understand why it would-the system is the solvent and solute, so it should lose heat. And does an exothermic heat of solution result in increased velocity of the particles in the fluid? According to an examkrackers question, the answer to both my questions is yes. Apparently temperature and the velocity of molecules increases in a solution with an exothermic heat of solution. Does anyone know why?
