How to know which conducting element to add?

Postby chrisavalos-2L » Sat Mar 16, 2019 10:50 pm

I was wondering how to determine which element to add to the cell diagram if there is no conducting agent, is it always Platinum, or do we need to know different ones for different instances?

I'm pretty sure you can always add Platinum if you're missing an inert conductor on one side of the cell. I think you can add any solid metal as your conductor, but Platinum is what is standard. I hope this helps!

Basially what the other user said. I have also seen them use C, although Pt is used more.

I think for this test, using Pt is the safest bet
