  Reflective Equilibrium (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Still, he comments that seeking a reflective equilibrium that merely irons out minor incoherence in a person's system of beliefs is not really the use of the method that is of true philosophical interest in ethics, just as we saw it might not be in the case of justifying logical inferences.
Shared agreement on that wide equilibrium would produce a well-ordered society governed by principles guaranteeing equal basic liberties, fair equality of opportunity, and the requirement that inequalities be arranged to make those who are worst off as well off as possible.
Proponents of reflective equilibrium might reject the requirement by suggesting it is premature to ask for such a story in ethics or by claiming that we can provide no analogous causal story for credible judgments we make in other areas, including mathematics or logic.

 Economic equilibrium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In economics, economic equilibrium often refers to an equilibrium in a market that "clears": this is the case where a market for a product has attained the price where the amount supplied of a certain product equals the quantity demanded.
The concept of equilibrium is also applied to describe and understand other sub-systems of the economy that do not follow the logic of supply and demand, for example, population growth.
For an equilbrium to be stable, a small deviation from equilibrium leads to economic forces that returns an economic sub-system toward the original equilibrium.

 USA Gymnastics Online: Technique: EQUILIBRIUM: BIOMECHANICAL IMPLICATIONS
Hay and Reid (1982) suggest that equilibrium is often absent in movement experiences because forces such as aerodynamic drag, gravity, and other external forces act on the athlete and generally create either linear or angular acceleration.
Static equilibrium is changed from frame A to B as the gymnast concentrically contracts the hip abductors of the right leg, resulting in an internal action force that translates to an external ground reaction force.
Static equilibrium does not exist when the CG and its corresponding line of gravity are outside the base of support; however, this is not the case with dynamic equilibrium.

 [No title]
At equilibrium, the concentrations of the substances participating in the equilibrium are constant.
Notice that the value of the equilibrium constant is the same, regardless of whether the initial materials were hydrogen and iodine or the hydrogen iodide molecule or a combination of all and whether the components were present in equal or different concentrations.
The equilibrium constant is a very useful concept, for it allows the prediction and calculation of the concentrations of the various species present in a reaction mixture at equilibrium.

In the logistic growth equation r is the intrinsic growth rate and is the same r as in the last section.  In other words, it is the growth rate that will occur in the absence of any limiting factors.  K is called either the saturation level or the carrying capacity.
equilibrium solutions since they are constant solutions to the differential equation.  We’ll leave the rest of the details on sketching the direction field to you.  Here is the direction field as well as a couple of solutions sketched in as well.
Equilibrium solutions in which solutions that start “near” them move away from the equilibrium solution are called unstable equilibriums points or unstable equilibrium solutions.  So, for our logistics equation, P = 0 is an unstable equilibrium solution.

 Torque and Equilibrium   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The conditions for equilibrium are basic to the design of any load-bearing structure such as a bridge or a building since such structures must be able to maintain equilibrium under load.
They are also important for the study of machines, since one must first establish equilibrium and then apply extra force or torque to produce the desired movement of the machine.
The conditions of equilibrium are used to analyze the "simple machines" which are the building blocks for more complex machines.

 The Paretian System: I - Equilibrium
Consequently, we have an equilibrium only if the output prices are such that maximizing utility, the sum of demands of both housholds will be equal to the amount supplied by firms.
We achieve a general equilibrium if all markets clear - which means that output prices and factor prices are such that the demand for each factor equals the supply of each factor and the demand for each good equals the supply of each good, i.e.
Pareto (1906) concluded that this was enough to establish the existence of a general equilibrium for the economy.
