using ICE tables

Postby Jorja De Jesus 2C » Sun Feb 09, 2020 3:29 am

Are ICE tables only used to calculate molarity? Or can there be instances where the ICE table will be used to find something other than molarity such as mass, and then the mass would have to be converted into molarity?

I believe it is just for molarity, that way all the values in your ICE table are consistent and comparable.

The numbers that you plug into the ICE table should be either molarity or pressure (for gases). Once you have molarity or pressure, you can calculate for the mass using the Ideal Gas Law and the molar mass of the molecule.

Yes, ICE tables are just for Concentrations of molarity or for the pressures of gas. Conversions to mass can be done later by knowing the molarities at equilibrium
