### 14.37(c)

I know that when calculating Q, we need to include both the concentration and pressure, but why does the answer calculate as Q=(P(H2)*P(Cl2))/([H^+]*[Cl^-])?
H2 and Cl2 are on different sides of the salt bridge.

Thank you!

H2 and Cl2 are on different sides of the salt bridge but they are both products. The cell reaction is 2HCl -> H2 +Cl2
