Salt Bridge

Postby Arjun Sharma 1D » Mon Feb 26, 2018 11:48 am

What’s the advantage of having a salt bridge over a porous membrane again? How do both of the work?

I believe that there is no advantage to using a salt bridge over a porous membrane. Both work by allowing the charged ions to move from one solution to another in order to keep the charge flowing. If there was no salt bridge, the charged ions (say, Fe3+) would accumulate in one beaker and no electrical charge would continuously flow.

I read somewhere that the porous membrane is inside the salt bridge to allow charged ions to flow between the cells, but the salt bridge keeps the water contained
