Set up two aquaria containing different amounts of water and start bailing, swapping water from one container to another. Will the water levels in both containers keep changing? Will the water levels eventually be the same in both containers? This activity provides a simple and fun way to introduce key concepts relating to reversible reactions and equilibrium.

Concepts

  • Equilibrium
  • Reversible Reaction
  • Observations
