CHEM 6A Lecture #6 (10-23-08) - Energetics of Ionic Bond Formation : requires hess’s law before some problems (i.e. sodium is usually in salt form and requires changing to gaseous form before changing to chlorine) - If the Coulombic attraction energy exceeds the energy required to make the ions themselves, then an ionic bond may form
