Cell diagram

Do you use commas or a single line when separating aqueous and gas?

You use single lines between different states and a comma for multiple species in the same state.

You only use commas when they are in the same phase, such as when they're both aqueous. All other times a single line should be used.

A single line is used to separate substances in different states, so in this case you would use a single line, instead of a comma, which is used to separate substances in the same state. Furthermore, two double lines are used only to represent a salt bridge, and one single line is used to represent a porous disc. Electrodes should also be written on the ends of each side of the cell diagram.

you use a single line because they are different states
