WHY THIS STATEMENT IS FALSE THAT AT EQUILLIBIRUM THE CONCENTRATION OF REACTENT=CONCENTRATION OF PRODUCT?

Expert Answer:

Chemical equilibrium is the condition which occurs when the concentration of reactants and products participating in a chemical reaction exhibit no net change over time. This does not mean the chemical reaction has necessarily stopped occurring, but that the consumption and formation of substances has reached a balanced condition. The quantities of reactants and products have achieved a constant ratio, but they are almost never equal. There may be much more product or much more reactant.
 
So, the statement is false.
