Re: Sapling Week 1 #3

I used an ICE table to solve this question. You know the initial concentrations by dividing moles/Liters and you have the coefficients which will give u the change. Then you can set up an expression that you can set equal to Kc which is [HI]^2/[H2][I2]

Re: Amphoteric: acid and/or base

for a molecule to be amphoteric it needs to be able to act as a base or a acid so it needs to be a proton acceptor or a proton donor depending on what it reacts with. water is a good example as it can donate a hydrogen atom to become a hydroxide ion or accept an electron to become a hydronium ion.
