In the cell diagram for part c of question 13 on the homework, why is the right side of the salt bridge written as Cl-(g)|Cl2(g)? Why is it not Cl2(g)|Cl-(g)?

I believe that either way is correct, as long as they are both part of the anode.

I believe that's right as well; it's probably more commonly written as Cl2(g)|Cl-(g) because it makes a little more sense in conveying the reaction occurring, but it doesn't really matter as long as they're both on the anode side
