Problem 4

Binding energies are often measured experimentally in kcal per mole, and then the binding energy in eV per molecule is calculated from that result. What is the conversion factor in going from kcal per mole to eV per molecule? What is the binding energy of KCl (= 4.43 eV) in kcal per mole?

  1. 4.339×102 eV/molecule4.339 \times 10^{-2} \textrm{ eV/molecule}
  2. 102 kcal/mol102 \textrm{ kcal/mol}
