What is the order for the cell diagrams including liquids?

You usually won't need to include liquids (because H2O is the most common liquid in our equations, and because aqueous implies in solution, including H2O would be redundant), but if you did, it would be solid|liquid|aqueous||aqueous|liquid|solid.

Also for cell diagrams don't forget to include the H+ as well!

So all liquids aren't included in the cell diagram or just H2O?

Cell diagrams frequently follow the structure of solid|liquid|aqueous||aqueous|liquid|solid. If the liquid is H20, you need not include it in the diagram. The solids on the outsides of the diagram also may not be needed if one of the reactants is a solid already, so a conducting metal is not needed.

H2O is not included in the cell diagram

Ok thank you all!
