What is meant when a reaction is described as “having reached equilibrium”? What does this statement mean regarding the forward and reverse reaction rates? What does this statement mean regarding the amounts or concentrations of the reactants and the products?
Hi to answer the second part of the post. At equilibrium the concentrations of both the reactants and products will stay the same (in other words, the concentration of the products and the reactants will not change). I hope this helps!
When a reaction has reached equilibrium, it means that the forward and reverse rate of the chemical reaction is the same and therefore there is no change in the concentration of products and reactants even though the system is still active.
