Winter 2016 Final Question 2A

In the solution to this question there is the following part:

K = PPCL5/PPCl3PCl2 = 2x/x2

How do we get the 2x/x2? I know this is from Chem 14A, but a quick refresher would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance!

Equations for reversible and irreversible processes

Do we use the same equations for entropy, enthalpy, work, and Gibbs free energy for reversible and irreversible processes? If not, when are the equations different and what are the equations we use for each process?
