Explain why an equilibrium between Br 2(l) and Br2(g) would not be established if the container were not a closed vessel shown in Figure 13.5.
Figure 13.5 An equilibrium is pictured between liquid bromine, Br2(l), the dark liquid, and bromine vapor, Br2(g), the reddish-brown gas. Because the container is sealed, bromine vapor cannot escape and equilibrium is maintained. (credit: http://images-of-elements.com/bromine.php)
