In this example, n_{0} moles of chlorine gas are placed in a reaction vessel whose temperature can be varied over a wide range, so that molecular chlorine can partially dissociate to atomic chlorine.

a. Define the degree of dissociation as \alpha=\delta_{eq}/n_{0} , where is 2\delta_{eq} the number of moles of Cl\left( g \right) present at equilibrium, and n_{0} represents the number of moles of Cl_{2}\left( g \right) that would be present in the system if n_{0}, dissociation occurred. Derive an expression for K_{P} in terms of n_{0},\delta_{eq}, and P.
b. Derive an expression for \alpha as a function of K_{P} and P.
