| divider in cell diagram

Postby Ashley Wang 4G » Sun Feb 23, 2020 10:12 pm

Hi,

In the example in class, Cu(s) | Cu2+ II Fe3+, Fe2+ | Pt
are Fe3+ and Fe2+ not separated by a "I" because they exist in the same phase?

Thank you!

Yes, it is because they are both aqueous.

Yes, I believe they were both aqueous so you wouldn't separate them with a 'I'

If the two were in different phases, would there then need to be a 'I' separating them?

I think you'd need to separate them if they were in different phases.

Both are aqueous so the convention is to separate by comma
