Inert Electrode

Postby 304621080 » Wed Feb 03, 2016 9:22 pm

When talking about including an inert electrode such as Pt in the cell diagram, can it be said that if there isn't a solid on both sides of the reaction, you should include Pt an inert electrode?

If there is no conducting solid present in that half of the reaction, you need to inset an electrode in order to read the potential difference.
