Cell Diagram (phases)

Postby Chloe Alviz 1E » Sun Mar 01, 2020 2:18 pm

Is there a certain order/arrangement that phases (ex. solid, liquid, gases) are placed in the cell diagram? I do know that the cathode is on the right and anode is on the left.

A cell diagram is arranged with the electrode on the outside, then solid, gas, aqueous until the salt bridge. If you have a liquid my TA said you can add it either between the solid and gas or gas and aqueous because the book doesn’t explicitly tell you what to do when you have a liquid.

Electrode | Solid | liquid, liquid | aq |(salt bridge)| aq |liquid | solid | electrode
