Cell diagram

Postby Matthew Casillas 1C » Sun Feb 24, 2019 10:41 pm

In the cell diagram with no double lines to indicate a salt bridge, how would you distinguish between the anode and the cathode? Or is it still generally accepted that the left side is the anode and the right side is the cathode?

Most of the time anode is left and cathode is right.

I think traditionally the anode is on the left, and the cathode is on the right.

Professor lavelle said the anode is always on the left and cathode on the right to represent electron flow.

The anode (oxidation, -ve electrode) is on the left, and cathode (reduction, +ve electrode) is on the right.
