To solve this problem, recall the formula that relates the heat of solution, lattice energy and heat of hydration:
ΔHsolution = 17.3 kJ/mol
ΔHlattice = 763 kJ/mol
(a) Solve for ΔHhydration:
(a) Use the following data to calculate the combined heat of hydration for the ions in sodium acetate (NaC2H3O2): ΔHlattice = 763 kJ/mol ΔHsoln = 17.3 kJ/mol
(b) Which ion contributes more to the answer for part (a)? Why?
