Textbook Problem

Identify each of the following statements as either true or false.

(a) At equilibrium the rates of the forward and reverse reactions are equal.

(b) When a reaction reaches equilibrium the forward and reverse reactions cease to occur.

(c) Chemical reactions always proceed toward equilibrium.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The given statement either true or false should be identified.

Concept introduction:

Chemical equilibrium is the state of the chemical reaction in which both reactants and products are present in concentrations which have no further tendency to change with time, so that there is no observable change in the properties of the system.

Explanation
