Systems in equilibrium are balanced. For example, if you are running on a treadmill you are in constant motion. However, you are not moving forward or backwards. As fast as you run forward the treadmill is moving you backwards. You are in equilibrium with the treadmill.
In the same way chemical reactions can be in equilibrium (the products and reactants are produced at the same rate). In this tutorial, we will begin by exploring chemical equilibrium in more detail. Ways of measuring equilibrium and the factors that affect equilibrium will also be covered.
