Galvanic Cells and pH

Postby ashwathinair » Sun Mar 01, 2020 10:27 pm

Do the sides of galvanic cells (anode and cathode) have different pH, and if so, how might that affect how we solve for half reactions?

I believe that it only matters when H+ or OH- are involved in the reaction (when you are using the Nernst equation).
