  • Are you asking about the rates of the forward and reverse reactions once equilibrium has been established? Think about this: What would happen if the forward reaction occurred at a much faster rate than the reverse reaction? What would happen if the reverse reaction occurred at a much faster rate than the forward reaction? I'll tell you this: At equilibrium the overall concentration of each species will remain constant, even though the forward and reverse reaction are both still occurring. So what does that tell you about the rates of the forward and reverse reactions at equilibrium?
