Equilibrium

The stable state of the system. See: Attractor.

Equilibrium

A state of stable prices brought about by the rough equality of supply and demand. This applies for consumer goods, securities, and most other goods and services.

equilibrium

a state of balance with no tendency to change. See EQUILIBRIUM MARKET PRICE, EQUILIBRIUM LEVEL OF NATIONAL INCOME, DISEQUILIBRIUM.

Figure 2 has also indicated that thermal equilibrium condition is satisfied for Bekenstein entropy at apparent horizon.
If the Earth is in thermal equilibrium what does this say about the energy received and emitted?
Thermal equilibrium and statistical thermometers in special relativity.
After thermal equilibrium was reached, the expansion of the material lead to a drop in temperature of the same amount as expected, Fig.
During the experiments, the initial temperature of the reaction cell was set at around 20[degrees]C after which the cell temperature was raised to 100[degrees]C at a 5[degrees]C/min heating rate and retained for 30 minutes at 100[degrees]C in order to reach thermal equilibrium in the reaction cell.
In this case the thermal equilibrium began after 15-20 s, and the temperature of rolls reached 350-370 [degrees]C.
Doing this requires knowledge of the time required for the solids to come to thermal equilibrium. The time required for this to occur will also dictate where the hot solids can be added to the reactor system.
When the machine is cold in the start-up phase of the production, the rotor needs some mixing cycles to reach thermal equilibrium. During this phase, heat will be accumulated inside the rotor mass.
In addition to making the weight manageable, the smaller segments also will come to thermal equilibrium faster than would a thicker substrate.
After the thermal equilibrium was set, 0.05 mL of silane was added to 15 mL of the Grignard reagent (providing a 20-40-fold excess of the Grignard reagent), and the temperature change of the reaction solution (less than 1[degrees]C) was recorded as a plot of temperature vs.
Reaction temperatures can vary from -20[degrees]C (using an external chiller) to 150[degrees]C with temperature values measured and controlled at thermal equilibrium to within 0.2[degrees]C of set point.
