### Pre Equilibrium Condition

Can someone please explain the purpose of knowing the pre equilibrium condition? If we are solving in regards to equilibrium why is it useful to know the condition right before? Is it because it gives tells us the point where right before the reaction contains its highest energy and is at its most unstable?

### Re: Pre Equilibrium Condition

Also, is the pre-equilibrium condition/approximation only used when the first step is fast?
