For cells that have enot=0, how do we know which concentration goes on top and which goes on the bottom for the reaction quotient?

For the reaction quotient, the products go on top and in that case it would be the anode which is the left side of the cell diagram. The bottom would be the reactants, which are the cathode given in the the right side of the cell diagram. In other words, the quotient is (anode/cathode).
