Cell Diagram question

Postby BiancaYugar_1D » Sat Jan 30, 2016 6:14 pm

I missed the reasoning behind why platinum or graphite is needed in a cell diagram, can someone explain this please?

It is used to allow the electrons to flow from the left to the right, and I believe platinum and graphite are used because they won't affect the continuous flow of electrons from the anode to the cathode
