Chapter 13. Laboratory: Chemical Equilibrium and Le Chatelier’s Principle
In a chemical reaction, chemical equilibrium is the state in which the concentrations of the reactants and products exhibit no net change over time. This state occurs when the forward reaction rate (conversion of reactants to products) is equal to the reverse reaction rate (conversion of products to reactants). These reaction rates are generally greater than zero, but because the rates are equal, reactants are converted to products at the same rate that products are converted to reactants, yielding zero net change in the concentrations of reactants and products. A system in ...
