ANIMATION in Establishing Equilibrium, Animations. Last updated December 12, 2023.

This animation explores equilibrium through the examples of water and a piece of chalk (CaCO3). Students will see the relationship of H+ and OH with water molecules, as well as the autoionization of water. They will also see that once equilibrium is established, there is no net change in the ions in solution, as when one set of particles dissolves, another set of particles will recombine. **This video has no audio**
