A very specific equilibrium reaction

  1. Apr 28, 2005 #1
    Ok. is it possible for an two chemicals in an equilibrium to be set up so that..:

    1) reaction in direction A produces lots of power, quickly, which is used up by something else
    2) reaction in opposite direction, direction A', uses a different source of power to get enough energy to react, but needs very little power, and it reacts even quicker than reaction in direction A.
    3) the reaction can be started and stopped (either by introduction/removal of something, or another method) whenever it needs to be.

    i know this is probably impossible...but hey, anyone wanna give'r a go? lol
