An ICE table is an easy way to organize the information needed to calculate equilibrium composition of a system. Start by identifying the components of the reaction (reactants and products) and list them. These will make up the columns of the ICE table. The rows are made up of initial molarity (I), Change (C), and equilibrium molarity (E). Then, fill out the table with any information that the problem gives you, concentrations of the components. This will either be in atm or mol/L, but make sure whatever units you use it is the same. To solve, you may need to add or subtract depending on which concentrations are given. If it tells you how much the concentration changes, add this value to the initial molarity. If it give the equilibrium molarity of the reactants, you subtract from the initial molarity to get the equilibrium molarity of the products. I hope that this helps!
