Order in cell diagram

Postby 204301116 » Sun Feb 08, 2015 1:58 pm

In part c in question 13 of chapter 13, the Cl- is placed before the Cl2, but the half reaction is Cl2 +2e- --> 2Cl-
I thought that in the cell diagram it would be Cl2 before Cl- since that is the order of the reaction, why is it switched?

I have the same problem and I feel like the answer key is wrong because a nonaqueous state can be closer in the middle like in problem 13.b
