1. Answer: The chemical equation is Explanation:

There are 2 types of reactions that are classified based on enthalpy change:

• Endothermic reaction
• Exothermic reaction

Endothermic reactions: They are defined as the reactions where heat is absorbed by the reaction. The change in enthalpy of the reaction is always positive.

Exothermic reactions: They are defined as the reactions where heat is released by the reaction. The change in enthalpy of the reaction is always negative.

Given values:

Energy released for 1 mole of HCl reacted = -42.1 kCal

The chemical equation for the formation of ammonium chloride follows:
