Imagine you have a compound with two isomers, isomer 'a' and 'b'. The specific rotation of isomer 'a' is 15° and the specific rotation of isomer 'b' is 87° . You put pure isomer 'a' into a solution and it slowly changes the specific rotation until it reaches equilibrium at 64°. You put pure isomer 'b' into a solution and it slowly changes the specific rotation until it reaches equilibrium at 64°.
