Reverse Reactions

    If it is thermodynamically favored for a reaction to occur forward and reverse, does that mean that the standard enthalpy of the reaction is close to 0?

    If the forward and reverse reaction rates are comparable, you will find the the standard Gibbs Free Energy change for the reaction is close to 0.
