Cell Diagram or Representation of Galvanic Cell Chemistry Notes

Cell Diagram or Representation of Galvanic Cell :

→ As we know that Galvanic cell is made up of two half-cells i.e., oxidation half-cell and reduction half-cell. If metal is represented by M and metal ions are represented by M** then we will write half-cells as follows:

  • Oxidation half-cell: M / Mn+(C1)
  • Reduction half-cell : Mn+(C2) / M

→ Here C1 and C2 are ionic concentration of oxidation and reduction half-cells. Oxidation half-cell, which is anode, write at left side and reduction half-cell, which is cathode, write at right side.

Salt bridge is represented by two perpendicular parallel lines in between them.
For example : We represent Daniell cell as follows:
