What are the primary conceptual and mathematical differences between kinetics and thermodynamics? Can you explain through example and application?

Thermodynamics is not about things moving and changing but instead about how stable they are in one state versus another, while kinetics is about how quickly or slowly species react.


I think you might need to take a look at the lesson outlines but here are some equations related to each topic (Not all are relevant to the course, I found these images online)
