- Sometimes they give all equilibrium concentrations and look for Equilibrium constant (K).
- Sometime they give K and you are looking for one of the species' equilibrium concentration (they give all other species' equilibrium concentrations)
- Sometimes they give concentration of one reactant and/or product at equilibrium and all other species' initial concentrations and you are calculating K.
- If this occurs, all you Wizards of Stoichiometry need to set-up ICE Box table.
- i. Change mole and container of initial conditions into concentration (Molarity, M).
- ii. Convert one piece of equilibrium to mole or M reacted.
- iii. Take M reacted and use stoichiometry to determine amount of all other species reacted or producted in rxn
- iv. Use math on table to determine equilibrium concentration of all species.
