Lattice enthalpy

Asked by pathi1965 | 27th Dec, 2009, 05:18: PM

Expert Answer:

The lattice enthalpy of an ionic compound is the enthalpy change which occurs when one mole of an ionic compound dissociates into its ions in gaseous state. If lattice enthalpy is less than hydration enthalpy a given salt will dissolve in water. If lattice enthalpy is greater than hydration enthalpy a given salt will not dissolve in water
