Reversible Expansion

$w=-P\Delta V$
and
$w=-\int_{V_{1}}^{V_{2}}PdV=-nRTln\frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}}$

Reversible Expansion

If a system is at equilibrium does that mean it is reversible? If so, in what ways is it reversible?

Re: Reversible Expansion

Reversible reactions that occur in closed systems will somehow reach equilibrium. During this time the concentration of both P and R do not change. But that does not mean that the reaction has stopped. The forward and reverse reactions are continuing but at equal rates.
