microscopic reversibility

When can we assume that a reaction has microscopic reversibility?

Re: microscopic reversibility

we can assume that a reaction has microscopic reversibility when the reaction has the same intermediates (same pathway) in a forward and reverse reaction. Also I don't think we need to know a lot about this topic but I may be wrong.

Re: microscopic reversibility

You can assume microscopic reversibility when the rate of the forward reaction and the rate of the reverse reaction are equal during equilibrium.

Re: microscopic reversibility

Microscopic reversibilty refers to the reactions having the same intermediates in the forward and reverse reactions.
