NaF, KF, MgO and CaO are crystalline solids. They have NaCl structure. Their lattice energies vary in the order
  • a)
    NaF < KF < MgO < CaO
  • b)
    KF < NaF < CaO < MgO
  • c)
    MgO < CaO < NaF < KF
  • d)
    CaO < MgO < KF < NaF
Correct answer is option 'B'. Can you explain this answer?

Lattice energy varies with varies in oxidation state as oxidation state increases lattice energy increase for same oxidation state, as radius between postive and negative atom incrases lattice energy decreases
