## Reversible Reactions

isochoric/isometric: $\Delta V = 0$
isothermal: $\Delta T = 0$
isobaric: $\Delta P = 0$

### Reversible Reactions

What does it mean for a reaction to be reversible? Why are small changes associated with them?

I think a reversible reaction is a reaction where the products are able to react together to form the reactant and vice versa.

Reversible reactions usually take place when weak acids and bases are involved, as opposed to strong acids and bases.

### Re: Reversible Reactions

Hello,

I am also confused about this! Additionally, what makes a reaction irreversible and what are its implications in relations to work and internal energy? Thank you!

### Re: Reversible Reactions

I have a question related to lecture material. Are systems at constant pressure synonymous to systems to which energy changes occur that are reversible? In lecture, there was some sort of association drawn between constant pressure and reversible reactions and I want to confirm if I understood it correctly.

### Re: Reversible Reactions

Reversible reactions in thermodynamics refer to thermal equilibrium when the temperature of the system and surroundings is the same. Thermal equilibrium is dynamic and responsive to change, even infinitesimal.
