Gp=Gr

Why does Gp have to equal Gr in order for the system to be in equilibrium?

At equilibrium, the forward and reverse reactions occur at the same right which means that they are at their lowest energy states. As a result, the Gibbs free energy of the reactants and products has to be the same at equilibrium.

If the rates of reactions are the same, the free energies on both sides of the equation should be the same.

What does it mean for them to be at their lowest energy states?
