Write the half-reactions and devise a galvanic cell (write a cell diagram) to study each of the following reactions:
(a) AgBr(s) -> Ag+(aq) + Br-(aq), a solubility equilibrium

In the half reaction for the anode, the answer key gives the following reaction: AgBr(s) + e- -> Ag(s) + Br-(aq)
Why doesn't Ag(s) have a positive charge?

Ag(s) doesn't have a positive charge because it is not interacting with another element and therefore cannot be gaining or losing an electron
