Platinum in Cell Diagrams

Postby Xuan Kuang 2L » Mon Feb 25, 2019 12:51 pm

If one side of the diagram yields no solid metal, do we automatically know that we should write Pt(s) on that side? Is there a way to know which alternative metal we use, if we don't use Pt(s)?

i think we're supposed to use Pt(s) for all reactions lacking a solid that conducts electricity. (Lavelle said during lecture that you can also use graphite, but i think we should just stick to using Pt(s) for now)
