The purpose of the salt bridge is to maintain charge balance. As the electrons move from the anode to the cathode, electrons move from the cathode back to the anode to keep the flow of electrons constant. It ultimately maintains neutrality.

The importance of a salt bridge is to maintain charge balance since electrons are moving from one side of the bride to the other.

A salt bridge is important to allow anions to diffuse through. Without it, over time there will be an accumulation of electrons on the right side, so use anions like Cl- to diffuse to the other side to keep the two solutions neutral.

It allows ions to flow and maintains neutrality. Negative ions move to the anode side to help keep electrons flowing to the cathode side.
