Water in cell diagrams

Postby Kyra LeRoy 1E » Mon Feb 19, 2018 9:09 pm

Is H20(l) never included in cell diagrams?
If so, are H20(g) and H20(s) included?
Also, are there any other molecules that will never be included in a cell diagram?

You would never include H2O (s) because it is impossible to have the water electrode and just no reason to have it in the cell diagram. Also H2O (g) might sometimes be placed in the cell diagram if the pressure is large enough?
