Conducting Metal

Postby Alexandra Carpenter 1G » Wed Feb 21, 2018 10:36 pm

In the case of adding Pt(s) to the end of a cell diagram, how do we know if the metals in the redox reaction are conductive?

Generally if you have a metal solid in your reaction you don't need to add the Pt(s). If you only have elements in the (aq) or (l) state you must add the metal conductor so electron transfer can occur.
