ICE Table

Postby logankarlen_1E » Sun Jan 13, 2019 8:19 pm

For the ice table, what's an easy way to look at a problem and determine what the given initial and final values are? I sometimes get them mixed up

To find initial, you take the number of mols given to you and divided it by the volume since concentration is n/v. For initial you take your initial concentration and subtract it from x, x being what we are trying to find in the problem.

Do we only use the ICE table when dealing with homogeneous reactions?

For the initial value, reactant has a given value, while products are zero. In the reaction, reactant will decreases for a given amount x, while products will increase by an amount proportional to x. Finally, when the reaction is complete, the reactant is "some value-x", while the products are "proportion*x".

Remember the pure reactant are not included in this ICE table.

It sounds a little bit awkward if you just look at the words above. Maybe you can consider them when you are doing homework or practice. Hope it helps!
