1. The formation of a crystal lattice is __`__.


Calculate the lattice enthalpy for lithium fluoride, given the following information:

Enthalpy of sublimation for solid lithium = 161 kJ/mol

First ionization energy for lithium = 520 kJ/mol

F-F bond dissocation energy = 154 kJ/mol

Enthalpy of formation for F(g) = 77 kJ/mol

Electron affinity for fluorine = -328 kJ/mol

Enthalpy of formation for solid lithium fluoride = -617 kJ/mol
