Solution

The correct option is A 1.1The energy required to convert one Mg atom to Mg2+ ion is the sum of first and second ionization potentials = 7.646+15.035=22.681eV =96.5×22.681=2188.7kJ/molThe atomic mass of Mg is 24 g/mol.12 mg of Mg corresponds to 0.5 mmoles.The amount of energy required to convert 0.5 mmol of Mg atoms to Mg2+ ions = 0.5×10−3×2188.7=1.1kJHence, option C is correct.
