How do you know when to add Pt to the cell diagram?

Pt is added to any side that lacks a solid conductor.

If a substance is reduced or oxidized but does not change state (i.e. Fe3+(aq) reduced to Fe2+(aq) by gaining 1e-), then a solid Pt(s) conducted should be used. C(gr) could also be used.

You add Pt(s) to the side of the cell diagram (either to the anode or cathode side) that lacks a solid metal conductor.
