My question asks to make and carry out an experiment on a Ag/Ag+||H+/H2 Galvanic Cell. I understand that Ag will be reduced and H2 will be oxidized.

My question asks to make and carry out an experiment on a Ag/Ag+||H+/H2 Galvanic Cell. I understand that Ag will be reduced and H2 will be oxidized. However, when writing the notation for a galvanic cell isn’t the left side supposed to be oxidized (Ag anode) and the right supposed to be reduced (H2 cathode)? I am very confused with this concept.

Any help is appreciated.
