Adding carbon (gr) to cell diagrams

I know that adding carbon is not as common adding platinum, but when would you need to add carbon (gr).

As far as I understand it, Carbon Graphite is just another alternative to platinum. Whenever you can use platinum you can also use carbon graphite. But as you said, platinum is much more common.

Adding carbon graphite isn't as common as adding platinum but it can be written wherever platinum can be written! Writing carbon graphite is equivalent to writing platinum in this circumstance.

It works the same! You can add carbon (gr) instead of platinum.

Both graphite and platinum are inert conductors that must be used when you have two of the same species and phase or a gas-ion reaction. They are both interchangeable.
