# Solubility of Ionic substances watch

1. The equation from what I have learnt is:

Delta H solution= Sum of delta H hydration - dHlattice formation

I keep getting these kind of questions wrong

E.g.

Question 4
2. Do you know how to draw Hess cycles for these types of questions?

Same as for any other process:

NaCl(s) ----> Na+(aq) + Cl-(aq) ΔHsolution

NaCl(s) ---> Na+(g) + Cl-(g) ----> Na+(aq) + Cl-(aq) (i) ΔHlattice enthalpy --- > (ii) ΔHhydration

I was trying to get OP to work through it I thought if she could draw it out, she'd be able to see where she went wrong- usually it's either using the wrong signs or forgetting about balancing the equation ie that there are 2 Cl-'s involved in the reaction- hopefully that helps Dinaa
