Calculation of lattice energy

  1. Apr 23, 2015 #1
    In the following video,is he right at time at time 2:40

    I dont think so .Because lattice energy of fe2o3 should be 36 times greater than Nacl (without considering radius factor)

    I think I have got my answer.He is right.in fe2o3 ,we will have to take product of charge per ion which is 6 (-2 on oxygen and +3 on iron)
