cell diagram order, review session

Postby 005199302 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 3:14 pm

Today in review session, the cathode/reduction reactions was Br2(g) -> 2Br-(aq), but in the cell diagram, Br-(aq) comes before Br2(g). So in what cases do we abandon the reactant to product convention in the cell diagram, and put the product first? Is this always the case that the aqueous has to be right after the salt bridge, if the other product/reactant is non-aqueous?

Hello,
What I was told was that the aqueous solution in a cell diagram mostly always comes after the sold bridge and the solid components go on the outer most. Hope this helped!

The order is supposed to be
solid | aqueous || aqueous | solid
