When do we use ICE tables? Is it used to find the concentrations of acid/bases and then that is used to find the poh/ph?

ICE table can be used to find K, pH, equilibrium concentrations, etc. It gives information about the initial concentrations and the final equilibrium concentration. We can also calculate how much is remaining after the equilibrium reaction also.

We use ICE tables when a system was disturbed and you want to find the new equilibrium concentrations given the Kc.

You usually use ICE tables to find the concentration of a reactant or product given that the reaction does not go to completion (at equilibrium there are both reactants and products still being formed).
