Problem 14.15c 6th edition

Postby Michelle Wang 4I » Tue Feb 26, 2019 8:53 pm

For question 15 part C, in the galvanic cell diagram the answer key has
Cd(s) | Cd(OH)2 (s) | KOH (aq) || Ni(OH)3 (s) |Ni(OH)2 | Ni(s)
I don't understand what the purpose of adding KOH to the anode side of the cell diagram is, and also why do we not add it to the cathode side as well?

I'm really confused by this one too because of the KOH and Ni in the cell diagram :/
