Born Haber cycle help
« on: July 23, 2022, 12:11:20 AM »
hello all

i am finding it hard to enter the values for this born haber cycle with a given group of values can someone show me how its done please?

after using a youtube tutorial this is what i calculated:

A =737
B = 400
C = 200
D= 200
F = -1765

but i dont know if it is right

How is the enthalpy of formation defined? Can you write reaction equation for the formation of MgX2(s)?

I am not too certain the image is a practice question i found online, most youtube videos I watched doesnt seem to cover this type of born haber question

Mg+X2 = MgX2 ?

Your reaction equation misses states - add them and compare the reaction you wrote with the reactions D and F. Which one is it?

Large part of what you did is OK, but not everything.

Which of the processes - D or F - is a formation of the MgX2(s)? How is the formation defined?

I think D would be the formation as it has mgx2(s)

as D is formation perhaps the value  is -450 but I dont know how to calculate the other boxes with just this figure

I will ask for the third time: please quote the definition of the formation enthalpy.

As long as you ignore what you are being asked we won't move forward.

change of enthalpy where 1 mole of a particular element is formed from their component in their standard form?

What is the standard form for Mg and for X?

Hint: Mg(s) or Mg2+(g)?

Mg(s) as it is at the bottom of the cycle

No, it is not because it is at "the bottom of the cycle", standard states are defined: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_state

But yes, Mg(s) is the standard state. So, if the Mg(s) is a standard state, and the formation enthalpy is formation from standard state, which process - D or F - is the formation of MgX2(s)?

Once you assign correctly enthalpy of the formation of MgX2(s) to one of the processes in the cycle it will be obvious what is left to calculate - and it should be also obvious how to calculate it.
