Phases used in a Galvanic Cell

Postby charlotte_jacobs_4I » Wed Feb 27, 2019 7:40 pm

Are solids, gases, and aqueous the only phases used on a cell diagram? Are liquids never listed?

I believe liquids can be listed it is just not seen as often. For example, in 6th edition 14.11 question e, the question has a cell diagram with Hg (l) shown.

liquids can be listed. make sure to separate them from the other phases in the diagram
