### Internal Energy and Titration

Why can we assume that there is no volume change when an acid and base are titrated together for internal energy calculations?

I believe that volume change in calculations of internal energy is only relevant to gas phase reactions. This is why work, which affects internal energy, can be written in a form that includes delta v, the change in volume.

What exactly will we need to know for titrations on the final?
