Ice Table with quadratic equation on bottom

Postby Schuyler_Howell_4D » Wed Jan 23, 2019 10:44 pm

Is it possible to have an end result of the ice table that gives you only an x in the numerator and the quadratic equation is on the bottom?

I have been looking at a problem over and over to make sure I wasn't making a mistake. If it is possible how do you use algebra to solve for x. If it isn't what is most likely my mistake?

I think I am right because there are two reactants and only one product for the reaction.

Does this reaction only have one product in either the gaseous or aqueous state?

I believe that's possible. Could you list the problem you are working on?

This seems possible. You would just have to multiply the denominator out( for example (1-x)(2-x) = 2-3x+x^2). Then multiply the denominator with the K value. Last just subtract the x value from both sides to get the equation you need to plug into the quadratic equation.
