cell diagram placement

Postby Kassandra Molina 2B » Sun Mar 18, 2018 8:34 pm

I know that the left side of the salt bridge in a cell diagram represents the anode and the right side the cathode. The single line differentiates reaction/product. But sometimes it isn't written in that way so I just want to know how to correctly place the factors in a cell diagram?

A double vertical line represents the salt bridge with the anode on the left and the cathode on the right. A single vertical line represents a phase change, while a comma is used when they are in the same state.
