I wonder if it might be the starter motor not fully disengaging and as soon as the flywheel turns, it's kicking it back.

Rate of forward reaction equals rate of reverse reaction?

For chemical equilibrium Rate of forward reaction + Rate of reverse reaction = zero

What happens at equilibrium?

In a chemical system, there are forward and reverse reactions occurring constantly. As the forward reactions progress, the increased amount of products allows for more and more reverse reactions. Once the rate of the forward and reverse reactions are equal, the system is at equilibrium. The forward and reverse reactions continue at equal but opposite rates; however, there are no further changes in the concentration of the products and reactants.

What is a forward-reverse star delta?

A forward reverse star delta is a two in one motor starter where a motor first runs on star connection and then changed to delta connection after a time which has been set. The motor direction can be changed, whether forward or reverse

What goes backward but never forward?

A reverse idler gear in a manual transmission. It converts the reverse gears turning direction into the outputshaft to reverse its direction. The transmission can not spin clockwise when the reverse idler is engaged thus it only spins backwards not forward.

What is chemical equilibrium?

chemical equilibrium is where forward and reverse reactions occurs in a same rate or in equal rate....orrate(forward) = rate(reverse)

What is the behavior of a forward and reverse biased diode?

A forward biased diode conducts current, while a reverse biased diode does not allow any current to flow.

What is the difference between forward lookup zone and reverse lookup zone in DNS?

Forward lookup is name-to-IP address; the reverse lookup is IP address-to-name.

What is the importance of the reverse-to-forward resistance ratio of a diode?

to determine the comparison of resistance value of both forward and reverse diode . The more the resistance the lower the current , the lower the resistance the higher the current . When reverse bias , the resistance is high and it acts in open circuit and the reverse current is very small that can be neglected . When forward bias , the resistance is low and it acts as short circuit and the forward current is increasing as the voltage supply is higher .
