Fritz Haber was awarded the 1918 Nobel Prize, but 30 years later was considered a war criminal. This video provides the story of Fritz Haber as well as Henry Louis Le Chatalier, who is much more famous though he considered himself a failure. It also covers what equilibrium is, what chemical equilibrium is, and reminds viewers that as Hank Green said, "equilibrium isn't about staying the same, but rather keeping your balance as your circumstances change."
