cell diagram

Postby Jack Papciak 2F » Fri Mar 16, 2018 11:42 pm

In a cell diagram, is the anode always on the left of the salt bridge and the cathode is always on the right side?

Yes, the anode is always on the left of the salt bridge / porous disc, and the cathode on the right.

When writing an oxidized and reduced species in the same phase are they always separated in the order (Oxidized, Reduced) in the cell diagram no matter what side of the cell diagram they're on?

Cell diagrams are written in the order of electron flow. By that logic, the order of species should always go from oxidized to reduced, regardless of which side the electrodes are on in the drawing.
