Unit 7: Equilibrium, Introduction

Learning Objectives for Unit 7 is located here.

Chemical equilibrium is one of the central topics to chemistry and this course. Equilibrium is the point in a chemical reaction at which there is no further change in amount of reactants and products. In a closed system, the reaction appears to stop but actually is happening in both the forward and reverse direction at simultaneous rates. To be discussed: TBD.
