(a) In an experiment, 2.0 mmol Cl2(g) was sealed into a reaction vessel of volume 2.0 L and heated to 1000. K to study its dissociation into Cl atoms. Use the information in Table 5G.2 to calculate the equilibrium composition of the mixture.
(b) If 2.0 mmol F2 was placed into the reaction vessel instead of the chlorine, what would be its equilibrium composition at 1000. K?
(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.

Could someone walk me through the first two parts of this problem?

Part a is very similar to the example we did with the reaction vessel in lecture today. namely, you have to solve for x.

Part b is essentially the same question, except you are given F2 and are calculating its dissociation instead of Cl.
