Thermodynamic equilibrium

Thermodynamic equilibrium

When the property of a system
is defined, it is understood that the system is in equilibrium.
   

If a system is in thermal
equilibrium, the temperature will be same throughout the system.
 

 If a system is in mechanical
equilibrium, there is no tendency for the pressure  to change. 

In a single phase system, if the
concentration is uniform and there is no tendency for mass transfer or
diffusion, the system is said to be in chemical 
equilibrium.

A system 
which is simultaneously in 
thermal, mechanical,  and chemical
equilibrium  is said to be in thermal
equilibrium.
