Determining what’s thermodynamically more stable

Postby Phuong Tran 1G » Sun Feb 09, 2020 10:59 pm

Hi! For Homework problem 51.13, part c asked which is thermodynamically more stable relative to its atoms at 1000 K, Cl2 or F2.

I know that F2 has a bigger equilibrium constant for dissociation of F2 o F atoms than that of Cl2 to CL atoms. This means that F2 will dissociate more. How do I know which is more stable?

If F2 dissociates more then Cl2 would be more stable
