Cell Diagram Structure

Postby Justin Bui 2L » Tue Feb 20, 2018 5:08 pm

What does a cell look like and are there any rules for how they're drawn out?

Usually writing a cell diagram is something like this (item)|(item)||(item)|(item)
In each slot you fill in the elements of the cell setup. One side is the cathode and one is the anode; the book's examples will tell you exactly what goes where though.

Generally the format that the book takes is anode electrode|anode solution||cathode solution|cathode electrode.

You use one | to represent different phases in contact with each other and two || to indicate the salt bridge.
