Cell Diagrams

Postby Ashley McClearnen 1B » Mon Feb 25, 2019 2:00 pm

In the example cell diagram we did in lecture, why are Cu(s) and Cu2+(aq) separated by a single line and Fe3+(aq) and Fe2+(aq) are separated by a comma?
Cu(s) | Cu2+(aq) and Fe3+(aq) , Fe2+(aq)

When they are in an aqueous solution together, they are separated by a comma. When one is a solid and the other is in an aqueous solution, they are separated by a line.

Cu(s) and Cu2+(aq) is separated by a I because it is two different states. Fe3+(aq) and Fe2+(aq) is separated by a comma because they are the same state.
