Calculate the energy change in kilojoules per mole when lithium atoms lose an electron to bromine atoms to form isolated Li+ and Br-ions. [The Ei for Li1g2 is 520 kJ/mol; the Eea for Br1g2 is -325 kJ/mol.] Will a lithium atom transfer an elec-tron to a bromine atom to form isolated Li+ 1g2 and Br-1g2 ions? Explain.
