When do you add Pt(s) to the cell notation? Also, how do you recognize the species that you would put in that place rather than the Pt(s) in the equation?

Pt(s) is included in the outer portion of cell notation when it is being used as an electrode. Pt(s) is used as an electrode when there is no solid in the half reaction. It is needed to transport or receive electrons, but it does not react.
