Why do we have born haber cycles?
Lattice enthalpy cannot be determined directly so we calculate it indirectly by making use of changes for which data is available and link them together in an enthalpy cycle- born haber cycle

Tips
Pay attention to state symbols and direction of arrows, usually all data pieces given except one that needs to be calculate

What could the data for the atomisation of chlorine be given as?
Bond energy for cl-cl bond (=2x atomisation)
3 of 23
If drawing what order
Atomise, Ionise, Atomise, Electron affinity, then lattice form or dissociation and formation

Check for
How many ionisation energies
8 of 23
Why is the second electron affinity for oxygen endo
Takes energy to overcome repulsive forces between negative ion and electron
9 of 23
What is the most thermodynamically stable?
When the enthalpy of formation is more exothermic- one that forms
10 of 23
Why does lattice enthalpy inc from CaCl to CaCl3
+ve charge on calcium ion becomes bigger
11 of 23
What is enthalpy of lattice formation largely a balance between?
ionisation energy and the lattice enthalpy
12 of 23
What is the strength of a lattice formation depend on
Size of ion, charges on the ion
13 of 23
how does size of ion affect it
- larger the ions the less -ve the enthalpies of lattice formation (i.e weaker lattice) as ions are larger the charges become further apart so have a weaker attractive force between them
14 of 23
how does charge of ion affect it
bigger the charge of the ion, the greater the attraction between the ion so the stronger the lattice enthalpy (more -ve values)
15 of 23
What does LE become as you go down the group?
less -ve
16 of 23
What do theoretical lattice enthalpies assume
perfect ionic model where ions 100% ionic& spherical and attractions purely electrostatic (charge evenly distributed)
17 of 23
When is there a tendency towards covalent character in ionic substances?
When- +ve ion is small, +ve ion has multiple charges, -ve ion is large, -ve ion has multiple -ve charges
18 of 23
What happens when a compound has some covalent character
Tends towards giant covalent so lattice stronger than if 100% ionic therefore born haber value would be larger than theoretical value
19 of 23
What causes differences between theoretical and born haber experimental lattice enthalpies
B H l.e is real experimental value, when a compound shows covalent character theoretical and born haber lattice enthalpies differ. the more covalent character the bigger the differences b/w values
20 of 23
What happens when a -ve ion becomes distorted and more covalent?
becomes polarised . metal cation that causes polarisation is called more polarising if it polarises the negative ion
21 of 23
What happens when 100% ionic
Ions spherical, theoretical and BH value is same
22 of 23
Ionic with covalent character?
Charge cloud distorted. theoretical and BH values differ
