Galvanic Cell Diagram

Postby Julia Lung 1I » Wed Feb 27, 2019 7:26 pm

In a galvanic cell diagram, I know we put a line between the solids and the aqueous solution and a comma between different aqueous molecules in the same beaker, but would we use a comma or a line to separate gas and aqueous in the same beaker?

All phases are separated by a line, so you would put a line between the gaseous phase and the aqueous phase.

Does it matter the order when they are only separated by a comma? E.g., if there are two aqueous solutions, does it matter which one we list first?

Molecules of the same phase in the cell diagram are written in the order: oxidized, reduced
