Salt Bridge

Postby Bilal Pandit 1J » Mon Feb 24, 2020 4:53 pm

Can a salt bridge consist of any salt or does it have to have to include some of the material in either the cathode or anode solution?

It can be any positive and negative ions that are soluble in solution. They don't have to include the ions in either anode or cathode solution as long as they balance the charge of the 2 solutions after the reaction takes place. Usually the salt bridges contains a salt such as sodium or potassium chloride.

It can be salt as well.

How does the salt from the salt bridge interact with the cathode and the anode solutions?

In the salt bridge, the anions flow to the anode and the cations flow toward the cathode.

What would be a biological example of a salt bridge?

I'm not sure what a biological example of a salt bridge would be, as the salt bridge usually just contains a salt with one positive and one negative ion
