Use linear approximation, i.e. the tangent line, to approximate sqrt[3] { 8.4 } as follows: Let f(x) = sqrt[3] x. The equation of the tangent line to f(x) at x = 8 can be written as y=mx+c where m=1/12 b=4/3 find the approximation for sqrt[3] {8.4}

How is this Possible GK. Everywhere I have looked, including mark schemes and chemistry websites dH(solution) is worked out via this equation: dH(solution) = dH(LE)  dH(hyd) + dH(hyd) What is it you are working out with solute and solvent? 
Chemistry College (Need to know!)
Am I Correct in assuming this? dH of solution = dH of lattice enthalpy + dH of hydration E.g: dHsolution NaCl = dHLE NaCl(s) + dHhyd Na+(g) + dHhyd Cl(g) Units as kJmol1
