Write the reaction involved with lattice energy for MgO.
Class example said steps to find delta E is 1) Write formation for reaction, 2) Form gases to elements, 3) dissociate diatomics, 4) remove electrons from cation, 5) add electrons to anion, 6) form solid.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 6:17 pm ad1c9bdddf
Please refer to the attached file for solution. Cheers.
The lattice energy is the energy given off when ions in the gas phase come together to form the lattice:
Mg2+(g) + O2-(g) ...
The solution provides an attachment containing the reactions involved with lattice energy for MgO using both a diagram and the Born-Haber cycle style of writing out each step as means of finding delta E.
