Born Haber Cycles

This page provides exercises in the use of the Born-Haber cycle to determine lattice energies of ionic compounds. When you press "New Problem", a window will open with a set of thermochemical data related to an ionic compound. One enthalpy will be missing. Most of the time, the missing heat will be the lattice energy, but, occasionally, it will be another term. Regardless, determine the value of the missing heat, enter it and press "Submit". Results appear in the main window. There are a number of very important rules:
