  • Lattice Enthalpys
    • There are two main things which effect lattice enthalpys
    • 1) Charge has the biggest effect on the lattice enthalpy
      • The greater the charge- the greater the lattice enthalpy
    • 2) Size- The smaller the ion, the closer it can get so there's a greater attraction and therefore a higher lattice enthalpy
      • E.g. LiF = larger lattice enthalpy than LiCl
