Q: How does a catalyst affect equilibrium?
A: A catalyst will only increase the rate of reaction of a system not yet at equilibrium.
Once at equilibrium, the system will no longer be affected.
(WHAT DOES THE FOLLOWING MEAN?) In addition, the system will try to resist change from the equilibrium positive.

1) What's an equilibrium positive??
2) How does a system "resist change"? (I don't get that concept at all)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
