What exactly is a salt bridge?

a salt bridge is a device used to neutralize the charges of each half-cell in a galvanic cell. Because it prevents the buildup of charge in both the anode and cathode, the transfer of electrons can continue.

A salt bridge is a laboratory device used to connect the oxidation and reduction half-cells of a galvanic cell(a type of electrochemical cell). It maintains electrical neutrality within the internal circuit, preventing the cell from rapidly running its reaction to equilibrium.

A salt bridge neutralizes the charges of the half cells by allowing for ion transfer.

a salt bridge just allows ion transfer so that the redox reactions can keep going on and won't run out of/build up ions.

A salt bridge is meant to maintain charge as the electrons are transferred from the anode to cathode

A salt bridge basically allows the reaction to keep happening for longer and prevents the reaction from reaching equilibrium so fast. Essentially, when a batter dies, that means that the reaction has reached equilibrium.

Hello,

Could you explain how neutrality prevents it from reaching equilibrium? Thank you!!

A salt bridge, in electrochemistry, is a laboratory device used to connect the oxidation and reduction half-cells of a galvanic cell (voltaic cell), a type of electrochemical cell.

A salt bridge is a device used in experiments that allows ion transfer between two half reactions in the galvanic cell, neutralizing them.
