Thermodynamic equilibrium

When the property of a system is defined, it is understood that the system is in equilibrium.   

If a system is in thermal equilibrium, the temperature will be same throughout the system. 

 If a system is in mechanical equilibrium, there is no tendency for the pressure  to change. 

In a single phase system, if the concentration is uniform and there is no tendency for mass transfer or diffusion, the system is said to be in chemical  equilibrium.

A system  which is simultaneously in  thermal, mechanical,  and chemical equilibrium  is said to be in thermal equilibrium.
