6L.7 part b Homework Help

For the equation H+(aq) +OH-(aq) -> H2O(l), why is water not included in the cell diagram? Thank you!

Hi! Since the cell possesses an aqueous solution, water is implied to be present in the cell, so there is no need to include it in the cell diagram. Hope this helps!

It is implied that water is involves when you put that the ions are (aq), so you don't need to include water again because that would make it redundant. Hope this helps!
