Cell diagram from lecture problem

Postby Arianna Ko 2E » Fri Mar 15, 2019 11:07 pm

I'm still a bit confused on the cell diagram Ag(s)|AgBr(s)||Br-(aq)|Br2(g)|Pt(s)
I understand that there is no comma in between Ag(s) and AgBr(s) because two solids cannot be mixed, but why is AgBr(s) in the oxidation half of the cell diagram instead of just Ag+(aq)?

I asked my TA this and he summed it up as " specific to this answer"

But you would most likely write Ag+ (aq) in any other circumstance
