ICE Table

Postby vanessas0123 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 12:16 pm

Can you use ICE tables to calculate partial pressures for gases as well?

Yes, you can use it for partial pressures as well as concentrations and amount of moles.

Yes you can. You just have to make sure that all of the values in your ICE tables have the same units (initial, change, and equilibrium) and that if you are going to calculate a Kc or Kp value, that you convert to the proper units.

Yes you can. ICE tables are really useful for chemistry in general.

yes! just make sure everything is in SI units and they are all the SAME. ICE tables are so useful.

Yes. In sum, you can use partial pressures, moles, or concentrations in your ICE box.

For the ICE tables , if the product side has 2 moles that are both the reactants combined, would the x value be 2x because its doubling in moles?

I am assuming you mean:
A + B --> 2C ?

If so, then yes, when you are setting up the ICE chart, on the reactants side, there would be two +x's, and on the product side, there would be -2x (assuming the reaction is going forward and you start with reactants).

Yes, ICE tables can be set up to determine the Initial, Change in, and Equilibrium concentrations (of aqueous substances or gases) or partial pressures (of gases).
