Galvanic Cell Notation

Postby JohnWalkiewicz2J » Sun Feb 23, 2020 7:17 pm

How do you write the notation for galvanic cell in which there is no solid oxidizing/reducing agent present:
Ex: H2(g) + Cl2(g) ---> 2HCl(aq). Thnx in advance!

In certain cases, you would add a solid agent. Dr. Lavelle mention platinum in class!

You would have to add a solid electrode (inert conductor) and the most common form of this is platinum or graphite.

Are there any other common forms of inert conductors that might be helpful to know besides platinum or graphite?
