acidic solution

How would one write the cell diagram of reaction that is in an acidic solution? Is it any different?

In acidic solution, we usually use H+ to balance out the H in the reaction; therefore, in a cell diagram there will most likely be H+ somewhere.
In alkaline solution, we usually use OH- to balance out the H2O on the opposite side; therefore, in this kind of cell diagram there will most likely have OH- somewhere

After you balance oxygen's with H2O, you balance out the H with H+

In acidic solutions, you have to utilize the H+ and H20 to balance

The cell diagram would look the same, the half reactions being balanced are where there is a change depending on solutions.

You would still have to do the half reaction steps to balance out the redox reactions. The cell diagram procedure would be exactly the same as you would include the aqueous H+ and leave out the H2O since it is a liquid and cell diagrams do not include liquids.
