Illustrated are four ions — A, B, X, and Y— showing their relative
ionic radii. The ions shown in red carry positive charges: a
2+ charge for A and a 1+ charge for B. Ions shown in blue carry
negative charges: a 1- charge for X and a 2- charge for Y.
(b) Among the combinations in part (a), which leads to
the ionic compound having the largest lattice energy?
