What do we mean by a dynamic equilibrium? Describe how the development of a vapor pressure above a liquid represents such an equilibrium.

The term dynamic equilibrium must be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Equilibrium is associated with both physical and chemical reversible processes.

Explanation

In all equilibrium two reversible processes takes place in equal speed as if the change is not taking place any more. But the two processes continue. Thus it can be said that equilibrium is a dynamic process.

As the container is closed there is less pressure above the liquid. To compensate the reduced pressure the molecules of the liquid starts evaporating and accumulated above the liquid which exerts a vapor pressure...
