Cell Diagram

Postby Alejandra_Vasquez_1B » Fri Feb 10, 2017 7:59 am

When drawing or writing the cell diagram, when do you know to reverse the half reaction? Is it reversed for the anode or the cathode?

You want the HIGHEST E cell, so it will always be the larger number minus the smaller number.
So whichever has a smaller E cell potential will always be reversed.
