Le chateliers princible? Answered
I'm taking chemistry and in class our teacher showed us two reactions, one called the blue bottle and the other called the traffic light. these reactions are in equilibrium so the reactants are forming products and the products are forming reactants at the same rate, however after a certain period of time the reaction will finish. in the blue bottle experiment the mixture is a clear liquid with methylene blue as an indicator, when the mixture is agitated the mixture turns blue and after a period of time the mixture turns clear again. i thought this was a cool experiment and i think it would be cool if it was possible to create a mixture with methylene blue (or the others like the traffic light experiment have) that can be sealed off and will never complete or wont be having a true chemical reaction but will still have the desired effect.
