Inclusion of ions in the cell diagram

Postby Artin Allahverdian 2H » Sat Mar 16, 2019 5:20 pm

How do we know when to include the ions playing a part in the reaction, but that don’t get oxidized or reduced, such as H+, OH-, or any other ion into the cell diagram?

Ions or any other species that partake in redox reactions will be included in the cell diagram. The only species which would not be included from the redox reactions making up the overall reaction would be liquid water.
