I have the following two states. I have classified them as equilibrium and non-equilibrium and I am not sure if that is the right category my problem is I need to understand what parameters to look into to classify them any suggestions
A. The system is a Daniell cell on open circuit .This is Non Equilibrium State- Because Potential difference at end of cell is more then potential difference of other part of this system.
B. The system is a sphere which is falling through a viscous liquid and has reached its thermal velocity. This is Equilibrium - As in this state the viscous force (Drag Force) is equal to Gravitational Force.
