Make a sketch of a concentration cell employing two Zn/Zn2+ half-cells. The concentration of Zn2+ in one of the half-cells is 2.0 M and the concentration in the other half-cell is 1.0 X 10–3 M. Label the anode and the cathode and indicate the half-reaction occurring at each electrode . Also indicate the direction of electron flow.
