Cell diagram

Postby Nayeon Kang 2M » Sun Feb 05, 2017 7:51 pm

On the cell diagram of the equation on pg.48 of the course reader, why's there a comma between Fe3+ and Fe2+ instead of | sign? We use | between Cu and Cu2+ but why not between Fe3+ and Fe2+?

A comma represents the reactant and product that are in the same phase whereas a vertical line means they are in different phases.
