Salt Bridges

Postby Jessica Helfond 2F » Fri Feb 22, 2019 2:29 pm

Do salt bridges and porous disks both allow ion transfer in the same way? Or would we use one instead of the other in certain situations?

I think they bot allow ion transfer and both can serve the same functions for galvanic cell. The question should specify which one to use!

I thought that the salt bridges have porous disks which allow only for the transfer of ions between solutions and keeps the solution inside the bridge completely separate. Correct me if I'm wrong.

They both have the same purpose so the question should tell you what’s used
