Equilibrium is a state of a system where the rate of the forward and reverse reaction are the same.
The conditions for an equilibrium system to occur are: -
- It must be a closed system.
- The amount of reactants and products does not have to be equal, however once equilibrium is achieved, the product and reactants are constant.
- Equilibrium is a dynamic process.
- The rates of forward and reverse reaction are equal.
