Concentration cell textbook question 6N. 3A self test

Postby Samantha Chung 4I » Wed Mar 06, 2019 9:23 am

For 6N. 3A self test 7th editon, how do we know what is the product/reactant in Q as the question does not specify if the 1.0M of solution is on the left or right? Im assuming the saturated solution is the product, but why exactly is that the case?

Remember in class I discussed:

R ---> P

[R] concentration is higher in a concentration cell
[P] concentration is lower in a concentration cell

Also,

The Ag+(aq) is forming (increasing) on the left (in the cell diagram) and therefore the product.

The Ag+(aq) is decreasing on the right (in the cell diagram) and therefore the reactant.

so its correct that the anode is always on the left of the concentration cell right?

Yes.
