MCQs on Chemical Equilibrium

Everything tries to achieve minimum energy to remain stable. In a chemical reaction, reactants undergo changes to lower the energy and the reaction proceeds until a low energy state is reached. In a state of chemical equilibrium, the concentration of reactants and products doesn’t change with time and there is no observable change in the system. In a dynamic equilibrium state, the rate of the forward reaction is equal to the rate of backward reaction.
