# Solution: What is the shorthand notation that represents the following galvanic cell reaction?2 Fe2+(aq) + Cl2(g) → 2 Fe3+(aq) + 2 Cl-(aq)

###### Problem

What is the shorthand notation that represents the following galvanic cell reaction?

2 Fe2+(aq) + Cl2(g) → 2 Fe3+(aq) + 2 Cl-(aq)

###### Solution

We’re being asked to determine the cell notation for the redox reaction shown below:

2 Fe2+(aq) + Cl2(g)  → 2 Fe3+(aq) + 2 Cl-(aq)

When writing a cell notation, we use the following format – “as easy as ABC

To determine the cell notation of the reaction, we will use the following steps:

Step 1: Separate the reaction into two half-reactions.
Step 2: Determine the anode and the cathode.
Step 3: Write the cell notation of the reaction.
