7th edition 5I.13 Part C

Question 5I.13 Part C asks whether the Cl2->2Cl or F2->2F reaction is more thermodynamically stable. How do we know which is more stable?

The answer for Cl2 is smaller than F2. Therefore we know that F2 has a larger equilibrium constant for the dissociation of the F molecules. So, Cl2 must be more stable because it has a smaller equilibrium constant.
