Homework Help: Difference between electrochemical equilibrium and chemical equilibriu

  1. Nov 10, 2013 #1
    1. What is electrochemical equilibrium and what is chemical equilibrium?

    2.What are the differences between the two above?

    3. The difference between the two i think is electrochemical equilibrium is a state whereby the electrical charge in both compartments are equals.

    Wherease chemical equilibrium is a state where concentration in both compartments are equals.

    Can someone help to explain this in more details?

    These are hardly different, system in a chemical equilibrium is also in an electrochemical equilibrium (and vice versa).
