At equilibrium, the rate of product formation is equal to the rate at which the reactants are being formed again. The concentration of the reactants and products are not necessarily equal. However, since the rate is equal, the concentration of the reactants and products remain constant.

PART A. What is dynamic equilibrium?

(A) Dynamic equilibrium in a chemical reaction is the condition in which the rate of the forward reaction is higher than the rate of the reverse reaction.

(B)Dynamic equilibrium in a chemical reaction is the condition in which the rate of the forward reaction equals the rate of the reverse reaction.

(C) Dynamic equilibrium in a chemical reaction is the condition in which the rate of the forward reaction is lower than the rate of the reverse reaction.


PART B. Why is it called dynamic?

(A) Dynamic equilibrium is called dynamic because the forward and reverse reactions are still occurring, however, they are occurring at the different rate.

(B) Dynamic equilibrium is called dynamic because the forward and reverse reactions are still occurring, however, they are occurring at the same rate.
