6M.5a Cell diagram

Postby Alicia Lin 2F » Sun Feb 23, 2020 6:24 pm

for part a, the answer key doesn't put a Pt(s) on the left side of the cell but it does on the right. Why does the left side not need it?

Usually the ions must be in the solid state in order to conduct electrons, but mercury is an important exception because it is the only liquid that can act as an electrode. Therefore, you don't need an inert electrode on the left side of the cell diagram.
