Cell Diagram

Postby Renee Grange 1I » Mon Mar 02, 2020 8:10 pm

What order do you put compounds in the reaction in when drawing the cell diagram? Does the order of reactants and products have any affect when drawing the salt diagram?

At the ends of the cell diagram, you put your solid metal electrodes, or Platinum if your species that is reduced or oxidized is a liquid or a gas. The you use a single vertical line to separate chemical species of different states, and then put in your chemical species that is oxidized. Then you use a double vertical line to indicate your salt bridge. Then put in your chemical species that is reduced, use another single vertical line to separate chemical species of different states, and finally put in your electrode, or platinum if there is no solid metal.
