Born-Haber Cycles

This page is for the presentation of Born-Haber cycles for the determination of lattice energies. There are no numbers involved beyond stoichiometric issues. When the "New Compound" button is pressed, the formula for an ionic compound will be presented. You should sketch out the Born-Haber cycle and then press "Show Cycle" and compare the displayed cycle with yours. Or, you could be totally lazy and just press "Show Cycle" without trying to sketch the cycle first. Your choice. This page requires Netscape 6 or 7 or IE5 or higher.
