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 these forces. The model disregards friction, inertia, and the irregular distribution of the land masses of the Earth. The theoretical tide formed under these conditions is known as the 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
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
