The lattice energy* of NaI is -686 kJ/mol, and the enthalpy of hydration is -694 kJ/mol. Calculate the enthalpy of solution per mole of solid NaI. Describe the process to which this enthalpy change applies.
*Lattice energy was defined in Chapter 3 as the energy change for the process M+(g) + X-(g) → MX(s).
