A state of not being in equilibrium; lack of equilibrium.
The equilibrium reached between two ionic solutions separated by a semipermeable membrane when one or more of the kinds of ion present cannot pass through the membrane. The result is a difference in osmotic pressure and electrical potential between the solutions
(In economics and game theory) a stable state of a system involving the interaction of different participants, in which no participant can gain by a unilateral change of strategy if the strategies of the others remain unchanged
A state in which a body tends to return to its original position after being disturbed

A state of equilibrium in which a small disturbance will produce a large change
A condition in which the quantities of radioactive daughter nuclides in a material remain constant because they are formed from the parent as fast as they decay.
