Salt Bridge

Postby Eric Quach 1C » Thu Feb 21, 2019 4:10 pm

I know that salt bridges are used to balance the charges to maintain the charges, but how exactly does a salt bridge do this?

It allows ions to flow from one vessel to the other. It only allows certain ions to pass through and not others.

I think one way is that it is filled with cations and anions and the loss of electrons of the anode solution makes it positive pulling the anions out and the cathode solution gains electrons and become more negative and will draw out the cations out of the compartments of the salt bridge. I know there are some videos on youtube that explain this much better.

How does a porous disk complete the same function as a salt bridge?
