. Lattice energy of ionic compounds depend upon

A: packing of ions only

B: charge and size of ions

C: charge on ion only

D: size of ions only

Best Answer

Correct Option is: (B) charge and size of ions


  •  Lattice energy is the energy released when 1 mole of an ionic solid  forms from its constituents ions present  in  the gaseous phase.
  •  lattice energy depends upon both size and charge of ions.
  •  lattice energy increase with increase in charge of Ions and decrease with increase in size of ions
