ICE Tables

Just as confirmation, you know to use ICE tables if you're given K and the initial concentrations/pressures correct? Is there anything else to identify in the problem to know if ICE charts should be used?

generally, yes. they would give you the value of k and initial concentrations, which would make you work for the equilibrium concentrations. They can also give you some equilibrium values, but there are other ways to solve those problems.

Yes, generally an ice table is used if you know initial concentrations, and the K value. I dont think we have seen many other variations of this.

It's also possible that there will be problems that ask for certain initial concentrations or pressures and you're given the equilibrium concentrations and pressures. You can use an ICE table to solve for those as well.
