In part c of number 15, why is KOH added to the anode side of the cell diagram? It is not present in the given reaction so I don't understand where it came from.

There is a typo in the solutions manual. It says on Dr. Lavelle's website that "The correct solution should have a 3 as the subscript for the nickel hydroxide reactant.
2Ni(OH)3 (s) + Cd(s) → Cd(OH)2 (s) + 2Ni(OH)2 (s)"

Sorry that wasn't my question, I was asking about the presence of KOH in the cell diagram.
