# Problem: Use line notation to represent each electrochemical cell2Ag+(aq) + Cd(s) →  2Ag(s) + Cd2+(aq)

###### FREE Expert Solution

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

2Ag+(aq) + Cd(s) →  2Ag(s) + Cd2+(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.
