Cell reactions

Postby Tiffany Cao 1D » Sun Feb 18, 2018 5:23 pm

Given a cell reaction, like in example 14.13, how do we know which is the cathode and which is the anode?

You have to split it up into half reactions. From there, try to see whether oxidation or reduction is occuring. If oxidation is occuring, we have the anode. If reduction is occuring, we have the cathode.
