This question id from IB exam,please help!
1)Which compound has the highest lattice enthalpy?
A. CaO
B. CaS
C. LiF
D. LiI
Explain the reason ?

  • chemistry -

    Lattice energy is higher for higher charge on the ions; therefore, you would pick CaO or CaS as higher than LiF and LiI. Then the larger size of the ions decreases lattice energy; therefore, LiI is lower than LiF and CaS should be lower than CaO. I would go with CaO as having the highest lattice energy.
