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.

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

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

First Law Of Thermodynamics (Conservation)

Science / Biology / First Law Of Thermodynamics (Conservation): Energy is neither created nor destroyed, it changes from one form to another. MORE

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. MORE

Second Law Of Thermodynamics (Entropy)

Science / Biology / Second Law Of Thermodynamics (Entropy): The energy available after a chemical reaction is less than that at the beginning of a reaction; energy conversions are not 100% efficient. MORE


Science / Chemistry / Thermodynamics: The study of energy transfers and transformations. MORE
