Cell Diagram

Postby MaryBanh_2K » Thu Mar 05, 2020 6:27 pm

Are liquids the only thing we don't include in cell diagrams?

Cell diagrams can have any state of matter I believe.

You can have any state of matter in a cell diagram. This was proven in class when Dr. Lavelle showed examples of cell diagrams that had (l), (aq), and (s).

Additionally, the different state of matters are separated by vertical lines in the written convention.

Ex) Cu(aq)|H2O(l)

You represent all states of matter in a cell diagram

You include liquids if they are involved in the reactions in the voltaic cell. However, if one electrode has a chemical in aqueous solution, but water is not part of any of the reactions in the voltaic cell, you need not write water into the cell diagram. However, the chemical in aqueous solution should be marked as such.
