Punctuated Equilibrium

Science / Biology / Punctuated Equilibrium: A model that holds that the evolutionary process is characterized by long periods with little or no change interspersed with short periods of rapid speciation.

Linkage Disequilibrium

Science / Genetics / Linkage Disequilibrium: Where alleles occur together more often than can be accounted for by chance. Indicates that the two alleles are physically close on the dna strand. MORE

Equilibrium Tide

Science / Tides and Currents / Equilibrium Tide: Hypothetical tide due to the tide producing forces under the equilibrium theory. Also known as gravitational tide. MORE

Position Of Equilibrium

Science / Chemistry / Position Of Equilibrium: When a reaction's equilibrium 'lies to the right', the concentrations of products will be greater than the concentrations of reactants when equilibrium is established. Conversely, an equilibrium that MORE

Thermodynamic Equilibrium

Science / Chemistry / Thermodynamic Equilibrium: A system is at thermodynamic equilibrium if the energy it gains from its surroundings is exactly balanced by the energy it loses, no matter how much time is allowed to pass. MORE

Equilibrium Theory

Science / Tides and Currents / Equilibrium Theory: A model under which it is assumed that the waters covering the face of the Earth instantly respond to the tide-producing forces of the Moon and Sun to form a surface of equilibrium under the action of MORE
