Question 5I.13 (7th Edition)

Postby Lexie Baughman 2C » Sun Jan 13, 2019 2:56 pm

My question is in regards to Part C of this problem, which asks us to use our results from Part A and B to determine which is more thermodynamically stable relative to its atoms at 1000 Kelvin, Cl2 or F2. I found both of the equilibrium concentrations for Cl2 and F2, and the eq. concentration of F2 is larger than Cl2, but I don't know where to go from there. Thanks for the help!

To find the answer compare the K values for the reactions Cl2->Cl and F2->F and which ever one is smaller is more stable.
