The Kapustinskii Equation

The Kapustinskii Equation is used to to determine the lattice energy of an ionic crystal. It was formulated by Anatoliy Kapustinskii in 1956.


Please use only heading 2 and lower, heading 1 is ugly and is avoided.  In this section, give a short introduction to your topic to put it in context. The module should be easy to read; please reduce excess space, crop figures to remove white spaces, full justify all text, with the exception of equations, which should use the equation command for construction (see FAQ).

The Equation

Rename to desired sub-topic. This is where you put the core text of your module. Add any number of headings necessary for your topic. Try to reduce unnecessary discussion and get to the point in a terse, yet informative, manner possible.

Applications of the Kapustinskii Equation

Rename to desired sub-topic. You can delete the header for this section and place your own related to the topic. Remember to hyperlink your module to other modules via the link button on the editor toolbar.


  1. House, James. Inorganic Chemistry. Boston: Academic Press, 2008. Pages 219-220.                                                                     An Inorganic Chemistry Book. The Kapustinskii equation is in section 7.3. The book does not say who Kapustinskii but does describe the meaning of the equation and all the units used in it.

Outside Links

  • This is not meant for references used for constructing the module, but as secondary and unvetted information available at other site
  • Link to outside sources. Wikipedia entries should probably be referenced here.


Be careful not to copy from existing textbooks. Originality is rewarded. Make up some practice problems for the future readers. Five original with varying difficulty questions (and answers) are ideal.


  • Name #1 here (if anonymous, you can avoid this) with university affiliation
