Problem 44E

Rubidium iodide has a lattice energy of -617 kJ/mol, while potassium bromide has a lattice energy of -671 kJ/mol. Why is the lattice energy of potassium bromide more exothermic than the lattice energy of rubidium iodide?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 44E Step 1 of 1 Lattice energy depends on the size of anions and cations that are in the compound. Moreover, there’s a reverse proportionality between dimensions and energy: the bigger the dimension, the smaller the energy and vice-versa
