Problem: The following reaction can be written as the sum of two reactions, one of which relates to ionization energy and one of which relates to electron affinity:1. What is the reaction that corresponds to the first ionization energy of potassium, K?2. What is the reaction that corresponds to the electron affinity of bromine, Br?

FREE Expert Solution

We have to isolate the equations for ionization energy of potassium and electron affinity of bromine form this given equation.

K(g) + Br(g) → K+(g) + Br-(g)

Ionization energy is defined as the minimum energy required to remove a single valence electron from a gaseous atom.

Electron affinity is defined as the energy absorbed or released when a single electron is added to the valence shell of a gaseous atom.
