The reaction of Fe2O3(s) with Al(s) to form Al2O3(s) and Fe(s) is called the thermite reaction and is highly exothermic. What role does lattice energy play in the exothermicity of the reaction?
Solution 93E Step 1 of 1 Fe2 3(s) 2 Al (s)O 2 3(s) 2 Fe (l) The formation of Al O , relea2s 3ergy because of the formation of a new lattice with new, stable bonds. The energy released in form of heat after the formation of Al O lattice is so high to melt t2 3 metal, that in fact results in liquid form. For this reason the thermite process is used to join parts of steel together
