An ICE table is used to calculate the concentrations of substances when not given all the equilibrium concentrations. We use the Kc and set it equal to the ratio of concentrations. The ICE table tracks the initial, change, and final concentrations of the equilibrium concentrations.
Change in molar concentration is usually positive on the product side because product are being created from the reactants. This means that the reactants must have a negative change in concentration.
ICE table is the table we learned in class with (I)nitial molar concentration, (C)hange in molar concentration, and (E)quilibrium Molar Concentration. We later used the quadratic formula, and simplified cubic equations to solve for K and X to find the molar concentrations.
