ICE tables

Postby Aiden Metzner 2C » Sun Jan 12, 2020 3:53 pm

Do you always have to use ice tables when determining equilibrium concentrations, or is it possible to do calculations without the ice tables?

I think the process is going to be the same in order to find equilibrium concentrations (i.e., solving for X), but if it makes more sense to you to not use an organized table then that works too.

I think Lavelle suggested ICE tables as a way for you to keep your work organized, but i don't think it matters as long as you show your work.

It's a way to help you track your steps but you don't have to use the table.
