Salt Bridge Versus Pourous Disk

Postby Kayla Tchorz-Dis 1F » Fri Feb 16, 2018 2:30 pm

I was wondering if using a porous disk or a salt bridge made the reaction different, and what that difference is. Thank you!

I am of the impression that there is no major difference between the two, I may be wrong though.

A porous disk allows exchange of ions (so the concentrations can reach equilibrium) while through a salt bridge only electrons can transfer.

There isn't an overall difference, because both maintain neutrality in the solutions

Both allow exchange of counter ions to maintain the charge difference while separating the atoms or elements that are actually involved in the redox reactions.

Does the salt bridge transfer the ions Na+ and CL-?

Yes, it can transfer such ions like Na+ and Cl-
