Unformatted text preview: from a group I element M and a group VII element X is 100 kJ/mol, i. e. for the reaction M + X → M+ + X- , (Ionization energy of M) – (Electron affinity of X) = 100 kJ/mol (the reaction takes place with isolated atoms in the gas phase) At what distance of separation between the two ions will the potential energy of interaction between them exactly compensate for the cost of making the ions. Be careful with units. Give your answer in meters. the potential energy must be -100 kJ/mol using the Coulomb expression for potential energy (-100 kJ/mol)/(6.022 x...
