classification of reaction based on extend to which it could proceed to reach state of equilibrium

Expert Answer:

There are three types which are as follows:

1. The reactions that proceed nearly to completion and only negligible concentrations of the reactants are left. In some cases, it may not be even possible to detect these experimentally.

2. The reactions in which only small amounts of products are formed and most of the reactants remain unchanged at equilibrium stage.

3.The reactions in which the concentrations of the reactants and products are comparable, when the system is in equilibrium.
