### Born Habers Cycle

in example 8.12 in the textbook it uses born Haber cycle to calculate the lattice enthalpy can someone explain this cycle in terms

### Re: Born Habers Cycle

The Born Haber cycle is a way of breaking up the lattice enthalpy into smaller processes, whose values are known. The lattice enthalpy is equivalent to the sum of the enthalpy of atomization of the cation, enthalpy of atomization of the anion, the ionization energy of the cation, the electron affinity of the anion, and the negative enthalpy of formation.

Just to note, on the outline for the unit on Thermochemistry and the First Law of Thermodynamics, Dr. Lavelle says to omit section 8.18 concerning the Born-Haber Cycle.

Correct. :-)

And I did not assign homework questions on it.

thank you I noticed I just figured more practice the better so I should not worry about this cycle on tests or anything?
