Introduction to Chemical Equilibrium

Many of the chemical reactions do not proceed to completion when they are carried out in a closed vessel. In these reactions reactants are not completely converted into the products instead, after some time concentrations of reactants do not undergo further decrease and the reaction appears to have stopped. This state of system in which no further net change occurs is called a State of Equilibrium.
The equilibrium achieved in physical process is called Physical Equilibrium, whereas the equilibrium achieved in chemical process is called Chemical Equilibrium.
