vertical line in cell diagram

Postby Chloe Qiao 4C » Fri Mar 15, 2019 9:29 pm

In class we talked about that when two solid are in the same half cell, we use a vertical line to separate them in the cell diagram. Do we do the same thing if they are two pure liquid species?

I believe you only do it for solids or at least that's what Lavelle implied in lecture today.

You only do it for solids, as solids cannot physically be mixed together.

You separate them with a single vertical line when they cannot physically mix together. Because liquids are in contact with each other, they are separated by a comma instead. Solids cannot "mix."

No, only use the vertical line for solids
