# Lattice Energy Of Cscl

The lattice energy of CsCl is 633 kJ/mol.

## Lattice Energy:

Lattice energy applies to ionic compounds and is defined as the energy needed to completely separate one mole of a solid ionic compound into its gaseous ions. Often this cannot be accomplished directly and is why Max Born and Fritz Haber developed a method using Hesss law to allow calculation of lattice energies using ionization energy, electron affinity, phase transitions, and other atomic and molecular properties. It is called the Born-Haber cycle.

## 1 Answer 1 Sorted by:

Lattice Energy is directly proportional to the Charge on ion and inversely proportional to radius of atom . Now in between NaCl and CsCl the radius of Cs+ is way more than Na+ , even though CsCl is more ionic but still radius is more and hence the lattice energy is less .

## Question:

What is the magnitude of the lattice energy for CsCl?

## FAQ

Which has more lattice energy NaCl or CsCl?

So, NaCl has more lattice energy than CsCl.

Is NaCl stronger than CsCl?

Cs^(+) has a larger ionic radius than Na^(+). Thus, the strength of ionic bond is more in NaCl than CsCl.

Why does NaCl have high lattice energy?

MgO has higher lattice energy because each ion carries two unit charge whereas in NaCl each ion carries one unit charge. Was this answer helpful?

What is the lattice energy of LiCl?

MgO has higher lattice energy because each ion carries two unit charge whereas in NaCl each ion carries one unit charge. Was this answer helpful?
