ICE box

Postby Pauline Tze 3B » Thu Nov 17, 2016 11:58 pm

For ICE box equations in general, if the equation uses solids and liquids (especially if one side doesn't have gases/aqueous compounds only solid/liquid), would you include those in your calculations or would this simply mean that you can't use ICE box?

Or, a similar question would be, do ICE box equations only work for chemical equations that have gases and/or aqueous compounds on both sides of the equation?

Thank you!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I would think that you would omit the solids and liquids from the ICE box because they are not included in the equilibrium equation.

I believe they must be excluded from the ice box because they are not applicable in equilibrium, only gases and aqueous substances are.
