Cell Diagram

Postby mhuang 1E » Tue Feb 20, 2018 6:27 pm

When do we include inert solids such as Pt(s) in our cell diagrams and in 15(c), why does the cell diagram include KOH on the anode side and Ni(s) on the cathode side?

I think we use Pt when they are no other solids to transfer electrons.

Thank you! For 19(a) and 19(c), I was confused on when to only add Pt(s) on one side of the cell diagram and when to add Pt(s) on both sides of the cell diagram.
