### Writing cell diagrams

When writing cell diagrams from a given reaction when do we separate species with a comma? is this due to the species being in the same phase? If this is true would you also separate products and reactants in the same phase with a comma as well?

Yes, on one side(anode/cathode reaction) if 2 species are in the same phase then you separate them using a comma even if one is a reactant and one is a product. You use a singular line to separate two species that are in different phases ((s) | (aq)). Hope this helps! :)

commas are for if they are in the same phase

If 2 species are in the same phase you separate them using a comma and if they are in different lashes you separate them using a single vertical line (|).

Separate species are separated with a comma if they are in the same phase, and | is used for when they are in different phases.

In addition to this, you separate the sides of the reaction with a double vertical line, right?

Yes, you separate sides of a reaction with a double line.

use the comma only for the same phase, use the straight line for change in phase
