Notation

Postby Jessica Jones 2B » Wed Feb 21, 2018 8:52 pm

I was wondering why sometimes they use ...||Fe3+,Fe| and sometimes they don't use a comma. for example, ...||Au+|Au
In which situations do you use a comma or a line?

Comma is for same phase and solid line is for different phase.

And remember, each side is usually written (anode reactant, anode product) and (cathode reactant, cathode product).
