ice table

Postby connie 2C » Mon Jan 20, 2020 12:28 am

does an ice table only include gases and does not include solids and liquids?

The ICE table can include solids and liquids however the values will be 0 since they are not included in the equilibrium constant equation so they're impact is negligible.

The ICE table is just supposed to help you write your equilibrium constant expression and to track changes in the concentrations of the reactants and products. Your final Kc expression won't include solids and liquids, so you wouldn't have any values for them in your ICE table.

ICE tables are all about equilibrium so there is no need to include solids or liquids.

Solids and Liquids do not contribute to the equilibrium constant, thus do not need to be included in ICE tables.

yes, solids and liquids are excluded from ice tables as they add no significance to the solutions equilibrium
