Cell Diagram

Postby Tiffany_Cacy_3D » Sun Feb 24, 2019 3:47 pm

When constructing your cell diagram I know that the anode portion goes on the left of the salt bridge and the cathode goes on the right but within those limits does the order of the species matter? For example if the anode half reaction is H2(g) --> 2H+(aq) + 2e- would it matter when you are drawing your cell diagram which comes first, H2(g)|2H+(aq) or 2H+(aq)| H2(g)? Same thing for the cathode side as well.

I don't think it matters as long as you match it with what your doing on the opposite side and if you watch out for positive and negative sign.
