A reversible reaction occurs at equilibrium, while an irreversible reaction is not at equilibrium. Biological reactions are irreversible because irreversible reactions are usually much quicker.

In an irreversible reaction, infinitely small changes occur that allow the reaction to end at equilibrium. In a reversible reaction, finite changes occur, usually quickly, that result in no equilibrium within the system.

A reversible process is at equilibrium and energy can move back and forth. An irreversible system is a process that cannot be reversed by an infinitesimal change in a variable.
