Comma versus line

Postby klarratt2 » Wed Feb 27, 2019 4:03 pm

When you are writing a cell diagram, how do you know to use a comma or a line on one of the sides to separate the reactant/products?

You use a comma between reactants/ products that are the same state. For example, Fe^3+ (aq)and Fe^2+ (aq) would be separated by a comma. However when the two substances in the equation are in different states, such as Cu (s) and Cu^2+(aq) are separated by one straight line.
