(c) Use your results from parts (a) and (b) to determine which is thermodynamically more stable relative to its atoms at 1000. K, Cl2 or F2.

Why is Cl2 more stable than F2?

Cl2 is more stable than F2 because it forms less product than F2, as indicated by the fact that its K value is smaller than F2's K value. This means that it is less likely to dissociate, and thus more stable.

Cl2 is more stable because it has a lower K value. In the reaction Cl2 -> 2Cl, the reactant (Cl2) would be more greatly favored which makes it than the reaction with F2 and thus it is more stable
