If for the ice box problem you are given initial concentrations and not asked to find Q, can you assume that the reaction will proceed to the products side, or do we always need to find Q first to make sure of the direction?
Usually only the reactants have concentrations since none of the products have been formed yet (Q=0) so the reaction proceeds to the products. If the initial product concentrations are also given, it's not a bad idea to check Q to see which direction the reaction proceeds.
