H+ in cell diagrams

Postby Celine Hoh 2L » Thu Feb 28, 2019 11:08 pm

Can anyone explain when do we add H+ in cell diagrams?
eg.
Pt I Fe3+, Fe2+ II H+, MnO4-, Mn2+ I Pt

The only things that we add into cell diagrams are the solid and the salt ions. I don't think H+ is ever supposed to be in cell diagrams.

H+ and OH- both being aqueous are used in the cell diagram!
Water is NOT used

H+ is included in the cell diagram.

Include H+ in the cell diagram when it participates in the half reactions.

Include H+ in cell diagrams when it is used to balance out the H2O on the opposite side of reaction
