Re: 6L7c

In the reaction, there are hydroxide ions, but since everything else is shown as a solid, the hydroxide ions are written as KOH to show that the hydroxide ions are bounded to something and are not simply by themselves. Hope this helps!

Re: 6L7c

Why are species of the same phase separated by vertical lines instead of commas in the answer, and where do the free OH-(aq) ions come from since the original equation is only made of solids?
