Inert Electrode

Do you have to include an inert electrode if there is a liquid phase in the cell diagram? For example would Hg(l) I Hg2^2+(aq) require an inert electrode?

Yes, because an inert electrode is needed whenever there is no conducting metal.

Yes, either side of the cell that doesn't have a solid-state conducting metal in the reaction, then you need an inert electrode on that side.
