Name Date Class INTERPRETING GRAPHICS Use with Section 7.2 Figure 1 The energetic relationships in the formation of an ionic solid from its elements. Sodium metal reacts with chlorine gas to produce a stable ionic compound. The diagram in Figure 1 is a simplified version of a Born-Haber cycle, which shows some of the steps in this chemical process. The Born-Haber cycle was introduced by the German scientists Max Born and Fritz Haber to analyze the factors contributing to the stability of ionic compounds. Note that the Born-Haber method of analysis envisions the reaction as occurring between two

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
