For part 6M.11a, we are asked to draw the cell diagram with the given information: Co2+/Co and Ti3+/Ti2+. How are we able to determine the states of matter of these elements based off of the information given? Both Ti and Co are transition metals, so I thought they would both be solids; however, only Co is a solid. Do we have to take into account which elements would be better conductors? Also, is there a list of metals that act as good conductors?

Since all the species listed except for Co are ions, they more often than not will be in aqueous form, while those is solid form will have neutral charges. What helps me to remember this is picturing these ions as parts of a dissolved salt, i.e. aqueous ions. Hope this helps!
