Definition of Position of equilibrium

Position of equilibrium Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
General Chemistry Glossary
Compare with dynamic equilibrium .When a reaction's equilibrium "lies to the right", the concentrations of products will be greater than the concentrations of reactants when equilibrium is established. Conversely, an equilibrium that lies to the left will have a relatively small fraction of products.

In a chemical reaction, chemical equilibrium is the state in which both reactants and products are present in concentrations which have no further tendency to change with time. Usually, this state results when the forward reaction proceeds at the same rate as the reverse reaction. The reaction rates of the forward and backward reactions are generally not zero, but equal. Thus, there are no net changes in the concentrations of the reactant(s) and product(s). Such a state is known as dynamic equilibrium.
