Cell diagram

Postby Brian Huynh 3D » Wed Feb 01, 2017 1:35 pm

The double bars indicate a salt bride. What indicates a porous disk in a cell diagram?

A porous disk would be represented by a disk(or wall) connect the two beakers. Instead of it being two separate beakers, it's like a beaker with two compartments, split by the porous disk. Here's a link to a picture.

For cell diagrams, will we just need to know how to translate the short-hand symbols into an actual drawing for tests or is it just generally good for us to know what the short hand is?

I think translating the short-hand symbols into an actual drawing could be a possible question. However, I think we would more likely be asked to write the cell diagram (to write the short-hand symbols) when given the oxidation and reduction equations, as question 7C on the Winter 2014 Midterm asks (page 144 in the course reader). Hope this helps!
