Explain the trend in the lattice energies of the alkaline earth metal oxides.
Solution 43 E Step 1 of 1 We are considering oxides of elements belonging to the same group (II A). We know that the ionic radii increases while we pass from the top to the bottom of a group (it happens the same if we consider the atomic radii). Moreover, we know that lattice energy depends on the size of anions and cations that are in the compound. In fact there’s a reverse proportionality between dimensions and energy: the bigger the dimension, the smaller...
