Silver chloride is sparingly soluble in water because its lattice energy is greater than its hydration energy.

Open in App
Solution

The lattice energy of an ionic solid is the amount of energy given off per number (moles) of ions when the oppositely charged ions in the gas phase come together to form a solid whereas Hydration energy the energy released when water molecules break apart an ionic compound.

Hence silver chloride is sparingly soluble in water because its lattice energy is greater than hydration energy.
