Discussion: Chemical Equilibria

Dynamic equilibrium can be a hard concept to understand for many of us. This chapter began with a comparison of chemical equilibrium to sunbathers and swimmers at a beach. Please write a comparison (metaphor or simile) that helps you to understand dynamic equilibria.

Consider these questions:

  1. Does the process of equilibrium come to an end?
  2. Does equilibrium mean equal amounts?
  3. What happens when equilibrium is disrupted?

Somewhere to start: Dynamic equilibria can be compared to….

Respond to one other post that uses a comparison that rings true to your understanding of dynamic equilibrium.
