H+ being included in cell diagrams

Postby Humza_Khan_2J » Wed Feb 21, 2018 7:44 pm

In the solutions to cell diagrams in 17b, 23a, 23b, why is H+ included as a part of the cathode?

If H+ is part of a half-reaction, it must be included in the cell diagram in the compartment (cathodic or anodic) where that the half-reaction takes place.
