Drawing cells

Postby Valeria Viera 1B » Sat Mar 16, 2019 10:25 pm

What do we need to include/label in drawing a concentration cell?
When I google a picture of a cell there’s so much information

In general, you want to include the anode, cathode, ions, salt bridge, and direction the electrons are traveling.

A general cell diagram would be something like this for a Galvanic cell:

Conducting Solid | Anode || Cathode | Conducting Solid

Different states of matter are separated by | while different species of the same state are separated by commas

You also do not want to forget about the porous disk for concentration cells
