Salt Bridge

Postby Lizette Noriega 1H » Sun Feb 23, 2020 12:08 am

I just need clarification on the function of the salt bridge. Is its purpose to neutralize the charge build-up within the galvanic cell?

Yes, the salt bridge prevents a buildup of charge in the galvanic cell by letting ions from one electrode flow to the other side. Professor Lavelle mentioned the flow of Cl- ions in the galvanic cell example on Friday, so referring to that might help.
